VIII: (Oedipus Pt.1) Don't Mess with the Oracle, Just Don't Do It. Why Would You Do It? Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

This week's episode is part one of the story of Oedipus, the man famous for the things he did to his father and his mother... He's got a Freudian complex named after him, so you know he's cool. One too many seek awful advice from the Oracle, and there's a Sphinx involved! It's a real thrill ride. 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.
