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.
 
What does ‘2001: a Space Odyssey’ have to do with Odysseus? How does Brad Pitt's Achilles in 'Troy' match up to Homer's original hero? And is Arnold Schwarzenegger the new Heracles? This collection of video animations and audio discussions examines how the heroes of Greek mythology have been represented in popular culture, from ancient times to the modern day. Odysseus is the archetypal questing hero - a blank canvas on which every era has projected its own values. Heracles is the original s ...
 
Bulfinch’s Mythology, first published in 1855, is one of the most popular collections of mythology of all time.

Thomas Bulfinch’s goal was to make the ancient myths a ...

So. Many. Snakes. To continue Spooky Season, a look at the Father of Monsters, Typhoeus (or Typhon), and the near equally monstrous Echidna. 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; Ear…
 
Welcome to Episode 33 where we meet Pythagoras, a 6th century B.C. genius. Was he man or god? Not even his contemporaries were sure. Pythagoras himself once said, “There are gods … and there are men … and there is Pythagoras.” Avowedly the son of Apollo, he is known today as the father of mathematics. All modern science and logic sprung from his or…

According to the Greeks, we have seasons thanks to Demeter, Persephone, and Hades. But you may not know that the myth of seasons is really a myth about life, death, and rebirth. It is also one of the greatest love stories in Greek Mythology. It is a story about the love of a mother for her daughter and the love between Persephone and Hades. Don't b…

Welcome to Episode 32. In this episode we hang with the mighty Spartans. Where did they come from? How did they grow to dominate the Greek world in all things relating to war? Their society was founded by a man named Lycurgus. Or was it…? Some say it was Apollo — others claimed their bloodline ran directly from the sons of Heracles. They rose and f…

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…

It seems as though every culture or mythological system has death myths. The preoccupation with the afterlife is something that has transferred very quickly into our modern world.
