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. Gods, goddesses, heroes, monsters, and everything in between. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversations with authors and scholars or readings of ancient epics every Friday.
In the finale episode of Sophocles’ Tyrannos… Well, everything we all know is coming, comes out… Help keep LTAMB going by subscribing to Liv’s Patreon for bonus content!
CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. 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.
