The most entertaining and enraging stories from mythology told casually, contemporarily, and (let's be honest) sarcastically. Greek and Roman gods did some pretty weird (and awful) things. Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the wild things the gods did, and the all around incredible minds of the ancient world. I mean, how did they come up with this stuff? Gods, goddesses, heroes, monsters, and everything in between. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversatio ...

Revisiting the story of Perseus: the details and variations, the so-called "full" story of the (mostly) heroic hero's origins and his quest to save his mother, Danae. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thin…
 
Liv speaks with Kyle Lewis Jordan about the complexities of Hephaestus, both in relation to his impairment and as a god of creation and so much else, in addition to scholarship of disability in the ancient world more broadly. In part two they focus on Hephaestus's relationship with Athena and Aphrodite, the more problematic ideas relating to him an…

Liv speaks with Emily Edwards of F***bois of Literature explicitly to break down the horrors of Theseus in the most casual, ranty way imaginable. Because Theseus was the absolute worst. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault **ESPECIALLY THESEUS**. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I…
 
Liv reads Book III, (part 1) of The Argonautika by Apollonios, translated by RC Seaton. Arriving on Colchis, Jason and the Argonauts meet Aeetes and his daughter Chalciope and Medea. This is not a standard narrative story episode, it's simply a bonus reading of Homer. For regular episodes look for any that don't have "Liv Reads..." in the title! Fo…

Liv speaks with Classicist and dramaturg Emma Pauly about nonbinary Dionysus in Euripides' Bacchae and the resulting implications for Pentheus (along with queerness in myth and theatre in general!) For a refresher on Euripides' Bacchae you can listen to the past episodes covering the play here and here. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assau…
 
Today the story of Pandora's Box barely resembles the ancient story of a woman and a jar. It's been mistranslated, misunderstood, and misrepresented beyond comprehension. When a modern version becomes more misogynist than Hesiod talking Pandora, you know it's gone much too far. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, an…
