II: Perseus and the Crazy Things that Emerge When You Behead a Gorgon Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

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. 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. Theme music taken from is "Xenobiological Forest" by Komiku from It's Time for Adventure and is licensed via Creative Commons and is Public Domain. Other music used are clips from by Lee Rosevere, "Not Alone", "How I Used to See the Stars", and "What's Behind the Door" from Music for Podcasts.
