Mini Myth: Daphne, the Nymph Who Said "Hell No, Apollo" Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

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. All songs used are clips from Lee Rosevere: "More On That Later", "Not Alone", "How I Used to See the Stars", and "What's Behind the Door" from Music for Podcasts 4.
