Great presentation. Suffers only from poor sound quality.

Liv (sp?) tells the myths in a pretty engaging and entertaining way. The sometimes excessive use of colorful language can be a bit offputting, put the woke feminist asides are very funny. overall I've learned quite a bit. Thanks Liv!

Love it! Greek mythology broken down in easy to digest episodes.

Description

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. This isn't your average storytelling podcast: Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the insane 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.

Episode Date
Liv Reads Homer: The Odyssey Book I
00:24:56

Liv reads Book 1 of the Odyssey, translated into prose by Samuel Butler. This is not a standard episode, it's simply a reading of the Odyssey. For regular episodes look for any that don't have "Liv Reads Homer..." in the title!

This translation uses the Roman names for gods and heroes. Here's a list Greek to Roman names to help you out:

Zeus = Jove/Jupiter

Hera = Juno

Athena = Minerva/Pallas Minerva

Ares = Mars

Aphrodite = Venus (Cyprian goddess); also sometimes her mother is Dione

Poseidon = Neptune

Hades = Pluto

Hermes = Mercury

Kronos = Saturn

Artemis = Diana

Leto = Latona

Hephaestus = Vulcan

Heracles = Hercules

RE-AIR Mini Myth: Who Let a Woman Found a City?! Dido Beyond the Aeneid
00:14:11

Due to some technical difficulties, this is a re-airing of an earlier episode. There's more to Queen Dido than Virgil tells us in the Aeneid, she had a life before Aeneas came to town, if you can believe it! This mini myth covers the story of Dido's founding of Carthage outside of what is told in the Aeneid.


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.

LXXXVI: Bringer of Death, the Dread Goddess Persephone, and her mother, Demeter

She's the Bringer of Death, the Dread Goddess Persephone (and she's Kore, the maiden goddess of the spring). Persephone and Hades have a hand in countless stories from mythology and theatre, they ruled the Underworld and required constant appeasement. Meanwhile, in the daily lie of the ancient Greeks, Persephone and Demeter were equally vital if in very different ways from those revolving around the dead.

Liv Reads the Iliad: Book IV
00:28:58

Liv reads Book Four of the Iliad, translated into prose by Samuel Butler. This is not a standard episode, it's simply a reading of the Iliad. For regular episodes look for any that don't have "Liv Reads the..." in the title!

Here's a list Greek to Roman names to help you out:

Zeus = Jove/Jupiter

Hera = Juno

Athena = Minerva/Pallas Minerva

Ares = Mars

Aphrodite = Venus (Cyprian goddess)

Poseidon = Neptune

Hades = Pluto

Hermes = Mercury

Kronos = Saturn

Artemis = Diana

Leto = Latona

Odysseus = Ulysses (I think he's the only mortal with a name change, the Romans were weird)

Heracles = Hercules

(Not Latin, but Achaeans/Danaans = Greeks, Argives = from Argos, Ilius = Troy, Dardanian = ally of Troy, Alexandrus = Paris)

The Lysistrata is a comedy play by the ancient Greek Aristophanes. But it's become far more relevant in recent weeks, and not for good reasons. So I wanted to re-broadcast the episode with a new introduction. I hope you'll listen.

In the Lysistrata, Aristophanes proposes this: what would happen if all the women banded together to deny sex from the men? Would they be able to stop a war they don't believe in?

Mini Myth: Orpheus, Chronos & Why You Shouldn’t Try to Figure Out the Chronology of Greek Myths
00:13:51

In this bonus Mini Myth, I tide you over during a delay between full length episodes (I've got a semi-good reason) with a brief rundown on the Orphic Tradition, the Orphic Theogony, and the god of Time himself, Chronos (not, you know, Cronus/Kronus). Then I try to explain chronology itself in the Greeks myths, or, rather, the lack of chronology there is, and why. Included are some questions/rundowns that have been provided to me via email, and my attempts at answering.

XXIV: They're Not So Awful After All, Ancient Greek Women in Herodotus' History
00:29:38
The ancient Greeks weren't all gods and monsters. They were also the people who invented so many concepts we now take for granted. Herodotus was the world's first historian. He travelled the region writing down stories of the recent past. This episode recounts Herodotus' history, rather than myth. I'll tell you about the man himself, how he accounts for some of the most famous myths of the Greek world, and some of the badass women he wrote about. Special thanks to the book The Landmark Herodotus as the primary source on this episode. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. 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.

XXIII: When a Seer Tells You to Kill Your Daughter, Just, Don't (Trojan War Origins Part Two)
00:22:42
It’s the most famous war of history, and mythology. But there’s more to the story of the Trojan War than the war itself. It’s origins are complex, and stories in their own right. Part two of the origin of the Trojan War covers Paris and Helen who jet off toward Troy leaving Helen's husband peeved, and what happens when a Greek king feels wronged by a foreigner. Agamemnon puts together an expedition to Troy, and there are some hiccoughs. Special thanks to the book The Greek Myths by Robin Waterfield as the primary source on this episode.

XXII: One Mustn't Trust Mysterious, Inscribed, Shiny Fruit (Trojan War Origins Part One)
00:31:09
It’s the most famous war of history, and mythology. But there’s more to the story of the Trojan War than the war itself. It’s origins are complex, and stories in their own right. Part one of the Origin of the Trojan War covers the life of Peleus, his marriage to Thetis, and the birth of their son. And meanwhile, in Troy, a city in the east, the birth of an equally important baby takes place. This is the story of the births of Achilles and Paris, the war’s heroes, and of the Judgement of Paris.

XX: Prometheus, & the Other Origin of Species

This week, we delve into the origin of the human race. Why were we made? When were we made? We all know the name Prometheus, but what exactly did he do? Leant his name to a wildly disappointing alien movie, but what else? Something about fire and people and sacrifice. This is your explainer. Prometheus and Epimetheus, on Zeus' instruction, created the human race as we know it. Special thanks to the book The Greek Myths by Robin Waterfield as the source on this episode.

MEDEA! This week, on another special October episode... We delve into the character most famous for being downright insane.

V: Theseus, Ruiner of Women & All Around Awful Person
00:33:43

This week's episode covers the "hero" Theseus and all his epic and varied awfulness. There are many variations to the Theseus mythology, I've picked one. Highlights include: bandits, Hippolyta queen of the Amazons, Ariadne and our friend the Minotaur! Also spoilers for Wonder Woman!

A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. 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.

Mini Myth: Daphne, the Nymph Who Said "Hell No, Apollo!"
00:11:37
This week's Mini Myth covers the story of Apollo and Daphne. Better known as the man who wouldn't take no for an answer and the woman who would rather be a tree than surrender to him. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve rape. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. 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.

IV: Queen Pasiphae did WHAT with a Bull?!
00:24:05
In today's episode we delve into the mythology of the island of Crete, and the kingdom of Knossos. Queen Pasiphae learns the hard way what god-magic can make you do... and what that might result in (see: the half-man/half-bull named the Minotaur). We cover the secrets of the Labyrinth, the brilliant inventor Daedalus, and his not so brilliant son Icarus. Have you ever heard the saying "flying too close to the sun"? Icarus knows what that's about. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. 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.

III: Zeus, King of the Gods and Creepy Old Man Who Tricks Women
00:35:30
This week's episode goes into the nitty gritty details of Zeus's "personal life"*! We learn how he fathered the second generation of Olympians, and all the women (and one man) that he laid with in some of the world's most creative (and troubling) ways! Zeus was a creep, but he sure knew how to make an entrance. *Read: words I can't use in a podcast description. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women.

I: Eatin' Kids & Killin' Dads, an Introduction to Greek Mythology
00:21:09
In this inaugural episode of Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! I give this whole podcasting thing a whirl and tell the story of what the ancient Greek's called the Theogony. A rundown on how they understood the universe's creation, and how their pantheon of gods came into existence. There are gods, monsters, patricide, and some castration, I think we'll all have a pretty great time!

II: Perseus & the Crazy Things that Emerge When You Behead a Gorgon
00:27:33
This is the story of the hero Perseus. Spoilers: it's only vaguely like Clash of the Titans. In this episode we get a taste of how bad an idea it is to talk to the Oracle, we learn one of the creepiest ways Zeus got his rocks off, and just what happens when you behead a lady like Medusa. It's sure to be a sea-monster-sized adventure! A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is.
