Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast
About This Show
Greek and Roman mythology: we all know the basics, but have you ever really considered how crazy some of the stories are? The gods did some pretty weird (and awful) things. In Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! a myth geek tells stories of different myths in a casual, contemporary, and straight-up blunt way. This isn't your average storytelling podcast: Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the insane 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.

Aphrodite: Goddess of love and sexuality and super hot woman. She helped to cause the Trojan War, and she's famous for being born of a certain *ahem* type of ocean foam. In this episode we cover the background on Aphrodite, and some of her more famous escapades with ancient Greek men including Hephaestus, Ares, Hermes, and Adonis. 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. Sources: The Gods of the Greeks, by C.
