Description

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. 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.

LXXXIX: Dido Wonders Why She Got Out of Bed At All (The Aeneid Part 6)

The "relationship" of Dido and Aeneas continues with the affects of the love potion only increasing. Juno and Venus begin to form a plan of how to handle Carthage.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.Sources: Virgil's Aeneid, translated by Sarah Ruden.Attributions and licensing information for music used in the podcast can be found here: mythsbaby.com/sources-attributions.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
