Greek Myths are arguably the most influential stories ever told, with their influences seen everywhere today. From the iconic Medusa logo (Versace) to the Nike Wings of Vicotry (Nike).

In a world in which Olympians are petty, vain, short-tempered, and even roguish, it's hard to understand what makes it have such a lasting impression. Our podcast focuses on how unfortunate the Greeks were when they garnered the attention of an O ...

Welcome to Episode 31. In this episode we drill down into the world of ancient Greek healing. Was Hippocrates the father of medicine? Hardly.

They were akin to today’s breakthroughs…
