The Last Greek Word For Love, Part II

Thanks to Alexander Nehamas, we're looking at some modern thought on friendship this week. Also, I reveal that I left out (on purpose) an important part of the tale of Damon and Phintias last time and, like, almost all of the major plot points of Thelma and Louise!

The Last Greek Word For Love, Part I

Given that we're taking a look at friendship, we have a bit more of an informative episode this week: together, we'll examine what Aristotle thought about the whole concept of philia and how it was implemented into Greek legends. Next time, we'll hear some more recent thoughts on friendship and some modern re-workings of Damon and Phintias.

Medea, a Woman Scorned: Part II

As we reach the end of our examination of Medea, it becomes clear how her tale has remained relevant. In this episode, we hear about how Jason wronged Medea and the problematic lengths she went as she sought retribution. While I think we can all agree that murder is inexcusable, I hope that, at least, some light is shed on Medea's actions.

Medea, a Woman Scorned: Part I

In our examination of Medea, one of the most famous women of Ancient Greece, we'll come to realize that her plight has a lot of relevance. Though, before we can do that, we need to take a step back and reacquaint ourselves with her husband Jason and all of his buddies, the Argonauts. In this episode, we'll discover the less-than-perfect conditions in which Medea and Jason met, which will help us understand some reasoning behind her problematic actions in the second part of Medea, a Woman Scorned.
