GIANT CANNIBALS
Love, lies, mythology and murder on the seas of ancient Greece.
MIKE WARREN   Writer, director, web designer

Mike came to Dylan with a script idea in 2013. The story turned out to be an interesting one. Mike lives in Bristol, and spends his time on 35mm photography, travel journalism and programming. Giant Cannibals is Mike's first feature-length production. Mike reads his emails and tweets from @MediumThrills.

SIGNAL TO NOISE   by Mike Warren

How does one tell a whole story using only the human voice? Mike takes a famous tall tale and finds meaning in the medium.

WHAT I LEARNED   by Mike Warren

In what he hopes is an affably informal article and not a scruffy, unqualified and overly-personalised rant, Mike shares a first-timer's perspective on recording an audio drama.

We've just finished recording Giant Cannibals. After three exhausting days in-studio, I'm delighted to introduce you to our talented and hard-working cast.

THE SOURCE, PART VI   by Mike Warren

A disguised Odysseus finds Ithaca to be very different from how he left it.

MONSTROUS MEANINGS   by Mike Warren

Mike asks what a monster really is, and what fictional monsters can tell us about ourselves.

SOMETHING TO HIDE   by Mike Warren

So we don't trust Odysseus. But what ugly truth might convince him to spin his stories?

THE SOURCE, PART V   by Mike Warren

After ten years at sea, Odysseus returns to Ithaca.

TELLING THE TRUTH   by Mike Warren

Is our hero's own account reliably narrated, or are we right to lose the plot?

THE SOURCE, PART IV   by Mike Warren

Odysseus' story comes to an end, as he explains his time with witches, monsters and the dead.

THE OLD AND THE NEW   by Mike Warren

Can one of our culture's most venerated texts tolerate being re-imagined so liberally? We think so, and here's why.

THE SOURCE, PART III   by Mike Warren

Odysseus continues to tell his story. After a brush with the Cyclops, Odysseus' homeward journey is thrown violently off course. Giant Cannibals focuses on this section, because we don't think our hero is telling the truth.

THE SOURCE, PART II   by Mike Warren

Shipwrecked on Scheria and exposed for who he really is, Odysseus begins to tell his story. This is the Cyclops bit, by the way.

THE PROJECT   by Mike Warren

Giant Cannibals is a six-part audio drama series, based on a hidden story in Homer's Odyssey. It was written by Dylan Spicer and Mike Warren, and recorded at Attic Attack Studios in Bristol.

THE SOURCE, PART I   by Mike Warren

The Odyssey is the second-oldest surviving text in Western literature. Here's a ham-fisted attempt to summarise it in eight easy chunks.

JOURNEY TO LAMOS   by Mike Warren

Giant Cannibals is a re-telling of The Odyssey's single bloodiest massacre (see for yourself in Book 10, lines 34-164). According to our hero, a race of flesh-eating monsters is responsible for the unprovoked slaughter of Odysseus' men. But what really happened? And why does he explain it so poorly?
