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. Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the wild 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. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversatio ...

He got into Djing at the age of 13, and on that path, he stepped into the world of electronic music where he finally found his compatible rhythm. And ever since, sleeping with his headphones on, music became the soundtrack of his daily life. While pursuing his engineerin ...

Revisiting the story of Perseus: the details and variations, the so-called "full" story of the (mostly) heroic hero's origins and his quest to save his mother, Danae.
