JACK: Just real quick before we get started, this is Part 2 of the series on XBox Underground, so listen to Part 1 first before this one. Alright, let’s get started. [MUSIC] One of my favorite Greek myths is the story of Icarus. He was a young boy stuck on an island. His father made a pair of wings made out of wax and feathers for him to fly away. Icarus put on the wings and was able to fly around. His father told him not to fly too high or too low. Icarus took off and flew away, but forgot about his father’s warning and flew too close to the sun. The wax melted and his wings fell apart. He free-fell and plunged into the sea below and drowned.
