Episode 21: Theseus

April 13, 2017

It's been a wait for episode 21, we know, but we think it will be worth it! This episode is a very special joint project between us here at MythTake and our friends Aven and Mark at The Endless Knot Podcast.

If you're already subscribing to The Endless Knot (and really, you should be!), you'll know that our areas of interest often intersect and overlap. We've had many conversations with Mark and Aven over the last year, and finally decided to do a joint podcast--with a twist. To get the whole episode, you'll have to listen to both our podcasts!

Don't miss the rest of the show at here at The Endless Knot or subscribe via iTunes, GooglePlay or the podcatcher of your choice!

Episode 18: Homeric Hymn to Dionysus

January 8, 2017
We celebrate the new year with the story of a new arrival: Dionysus. The newest god of the Greek pantheon, Dionysus was imported into early Greek culture, probably from the east. The Hymn describes a young, strong and beautiful god who is abducted by pirates for ransom. Long story short, it doesn't quite work out for the pirates and yet again we see the after effects of a divine encounter.
 
Passages: Homeric Hymn to Dionysus (Hymn 7).
