Deus Ex Machina is a podcast where I do just that.: rewrite and retell Greek myths.

Lovelymissoye ,

Great stories told by an enthusiastic creator

I love retellings and Wart is an amazing storyteller!

There’s a love and respect for the source material that shines through.

I love the attention put into “The Train” and “The Reflection” is such a good example of what I love about retellings.

Also, the Halloween episode is amazing and more than I could have hoped for.
