For centuries, scholars assumed that Greek myths about fierce warrior women they called "Amazons" were just that — myths. But new archeology confirms what modern historians like Adrienne Mayor had begun to suspect: Amazons were real, and they were actually Scythian nomads. Also, dozens of Americans have gone to Australia to help battle the wildfires scorching the country. Michelle Moore, a fire program specialist with the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, recently returned from work with an aerial fire crew. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's Jan. 14, 2020, full broadcast.
