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.
Liv Reads Ovid: The Metamorphoses, Book IX
Liv reads Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book IX, translated by Brookes More. Heracles angers a centaur and dies a painful death, his mother and Iole tell stories. Byblis falls for her brother and Iphis loves Ianthe. Help keep LTAMB going by subscribing to Liv’s Patreon for bonus content!
This is not a standard narrative story episode, it’s a reading of an ancient source, audiobook style. For regular episodes look for any that don’t have “Liv Reads…” in the title!
