Welcome back to Spartan History Podcast, in this months episode we'll be taking a look at a few of my favourite myths.
First, the story of Perseus and Andromeda. From a difficult beginning the hero would rise above his apparently low birth to become one of the premier monster hunters of the age.
Next it will be the story of Bellerophon and Pegasus that will be our focus. He conquered all but would finish his days in misery, a tale of mans reach exceeding his grasp.
Lastly the tragedy of Oedipus will round out the trilogy of myths. A tale of despair and woe, the devastating story of fate's inescapable grip.
I hope you all enjoy the episode, and please take good care.
**This month's extra members content is a little article I've written about the lost Theban epic cycle, the collection of stories that told the tragedy of Oedipus in full. Not a member? No problem, sign up for free at https://www.spartanhistorypodcast.com/
