Alexander makes plans to invade Arabia.
Then he heads back to Persepolis for the first time in six years and has to crucify the satrap.
To celebrate, they have a drinking party where a bunch of people die from alcoholic poisoning.
And to deal with the problem of thousands of Greek exiles wandering throughout his empire, he orders them all to return home to Greece.

The Music: We want to get down on our knees and worship the amazing and talented composer who offered us the use of one of his amazing tracks, “Hero”, as our theme music: Jofre Horta. He's already a big deal in the composing world but he's going to be even bigger – and you can say you heard him first on our little show! Listen to his whole album on Spotify or iTunes.
