Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

Aug 28, 2018

It's part nine of the Trojan War, and things are getting dicey for the Greeks. Hector is using his god-power to break down the walls, and Poseidon decides he needs to insert himself on behalf of the Greeks. Hera, meanwhile, realizes the key to success is an intricate seduction of her husband.

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.
