VII: Cadmus, Saviour of Awful Zeus & Guy Who Can Grow People from Dragon Teeth Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

This week's episode covers the hero, and founder of Thebes, Cadmus. It's a primer episode for the upcoming Theban Saga. We learn that Zeus is a jerk and also sometimes needs major help from mortals, that a daughter of Aphrodite and Ares is awesome, and that husbands can be petty, vindictive people too. Greek gods were only human. 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.
