Madeline Miller is the author of the beloved and best-selling novels Circe and The Song of Achilles. Both of her books are offshoots of Homer’s Greek myth epics, The Iliad and The Odyssey, though in Miller’s versions, side characters are centered and given more fully fleshed out stories that feel contemporary, complex, and crystalline. On this episode, Miller discusses the magic of women, the craft of writing, and how she gave new life to an ancient witch.

Pam also talks about new year deities and answers a listener question about feline familiars.
