Episode #167: Plato, Timaeus, and Atlantis

This week we are joined by another SnakeForce guest, Tony Petrangelo. Tony is an active member in the Discord and has been heavily researching Plato, Socrates, the Mediterranean Bronze Age civilizations, and Atlantis.

We asked Tony to come on the show and talk to us about his research and his take on the Timaeus dialogue. He gives an excellent presentation, taking us through select parts of the text, providing context, opinions of academics, Neo-Platonics, and other researchers, along with his own particular take on what Plato may be talking about. This is excellent information for anyone interested in the concept of Atlantis.

See more of Tony's research on Atlantis at his website,

Below are some links Tony sent for anyone wishing to do further research:

Timaeus (Jowett translation)
Critias (Jowett translation)
Timaeus and Critias (Taylor translation)
Plato’s Forms, Pythagorean Mathematics, and Stichometry by JB Kennedy
The Musical Structure of Plato’s Dialogues by JB Kennedy
The Cosmic Serpent by Victor Clube and Bill Napier
Literary History in the Parian Marble by Andrea Rotstein


And of course, check the Library of the Serpent, which is full of relevant material.

Shadows in a Cave


  1. it will not play on any platform ?

  2. it’s definitely not working on Stitcher

  3. it’s definitely not working on Stitcher

  4. Again I come from the future to pose this question:
    How many episodes to you have to watch in each 24-hour interval to actually catch up with those Irish brothers Russ and Kyle O'Phidian?? My daily dose is between 3 and 5 episodes, depending on how completely my appointed tasks and duties lie un-touched. You may be surprised, you who read this in the dark Covidemic Days of 2020, that Demons have managed to prolong our suffering with this virus well into 2022!!! But do not abandon hope. Laughter being the best medicine, the cure for this plague is already to be found in these podcasts. Thanks, Snakey Bros!
