301 episodios

The most entertaining and enraging stories from mythology told casually, contemporarily, and (let's be honest) sarcastically. Greek and Roman gods did some pretty weird (and awful) things. Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the wild things the gods did, and the all around incredible minds of the ancient world. I mean, how did they come up with this stuff? Gods, goddesses, heroes, monsters, and everything in between. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversations with authors and scholars/readings of ancient epics every Friday. (Episodes from late 2019/2020 on are much more in depth and nuanced!)

<3 it!

Hey! I just want to say hi, from a nerd to another one 😊
I started your podcast this week and I am not only loving it but also I am having a lot fun and laughs with your mini jokes, that btw are on point 😂
I am a huge fan of mythology in general, but Greek Mythology is my big fave (I also love Egyptian)
I hope I can catch up to the latest one by the end of the week 😉
Thanks a lot for this! Keep it up 💕
