The Mahabharata is the longest known epic poem and has been described as “the longest poem ever written”. Its longest version consists of over 100000 shloka or over 200000 individual verse lines (each shloka is a couplet), and long prose passages. About 1.8 million words in total, the Mahabharata is roughly ten times the length of the Iliad and the Odyssey combined.
The epic is often ambiguous, and most authors try to fill in the blanks with their own ideas of what they think might have happened. The podcast idea by Lawrence Manzo is to simply present the ambiguities, explore the possible explanations, but still leaving it up to the listener to decide on what to believe.
