III: Zeus, King of the Gods and Creepy Old Man Who Tricks Women Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

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'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.
