Greek mythology and history inspire Janell Rhiannon's adult mythology series, The Homeric Chronicles. In this podcast series, she shares how her research informed major plot structures and the various surprises that cast new light on old (and new) Trojan War characters. Her ultimate goal is to elevate the female voices of the Trojan War era, bringing a wider female audience to a genre that is most typically geared toward masculine perspectives. **For exclusive content become at Myrmidon Elit ...
 
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 ...
 
The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for my Children by Charles Kingsley is a collection of three Greek mythology stories: Perseus, The Argonauts, and Theseus. The author had a great fondness for Greek fairy tales and believed the adventures of the characters would inspire children to achieve higher goals with integrity.
 
How was mythology used by ancient Romans in their everyday lives? At Nemi to the south of Rome, the sanctuary of the goddess Diana provides us with a snapshot of Roman life and society. This album explores some of the fragments of objects found at the site of Diana's temple, such as a street entertainer's clay lamp, an ex-slave's votive statue and a miniature model of the Temple itself. Containing significant clues about social mobility, these cult objects reveal how lower social classes use ...

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…
 
Welcome to EPISODE 28 -- The Proud, Audacious Amazons The Amazons were sired by the war god, Ares. They reflected their parentage well. As fighting machines they were almost unstoppable. That is, until they confronted Greece's greatest heroes. In this episode we look at their life style -- and their grandest conflicts. Over the course of almost a t…

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…
 
Hephaestus beyond the drama: the importance and lasting impact of the god of the forge (there are *robots*!). 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 thing. Sources: Theoi.com; the Homeric Hymn to Hephaestus tra…

Welcome to EPISODE 27 -- The Dishonored Sky Gods Zeus did not have the sky to himself, and shared it with the sun god Helios, the moon goddess Selene, and others. This arrangement worked well until an even greater force than Zeus came on the scene. This episode tells the story of the sky gods who were bested by science. That was a new way to explai…
 
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.

I love looking for similarities in myths from around the world. The Myth of Pandora and the story of Eve both teach us that the Ancient World believed that the curiosity of the first women brought about all the evils in the world. Come with me and we explore the similarities of these two myths and I explain how a lesson on symbolism with the myth o…
 
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 is on "holiday!"! Dionysus wanders and frogs ribbit in the Underworld, a battle of tragedians ensues! A re-airing of parts 1 and 2 of Aristophanes' The Frogs.

Liv is on "holiday!"! A re-airing of two favourite Theseus Was the Worst episodes. First, Theseus is destined to be a hero, he just knows it. He's willing to kill anyone along the way in order to prove it. Then, Theseus is back and badder than ever.

Welcome to Episode 26, THE THREE HELENS This episode features the story of Helen of Troy, also known as the woman whose "face launched a thousand ships.” She was beautiful, but ended up being a pawn of the gods in the Trojan War.

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!)

The ancient Greeks had two different myths explaining the creation of man. The first being told by Hesiod, where he describes the four ages of men. The other myth involves Prometheus creating man to be like the Gods, stealing fire from the Gods, and incurring the wrath of Zeus. But both myths teach us about hierarchy in the ancient (and modern) wor…

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…
 
EP 25: You Tell Apollo He’s A Myth … Welcome to Episode 25. This episode explores whether the gods are real or -- as scholars state -- myths. In this unique podcast we take a different approach, daring to examine whether we’ve all been misled. What if the Greek gods simply walked? What if they tired of the affairs and the squabbling that was a cons…
