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/
