Ep 377 - Lysistrata, by Aristophanes
Overdue
"What if women ended the Peloponnesian War, am I right?" asks Aristophanes in his classic comedy Lysistrata. Famous for its depiction of a sex strike that brings the warring Greek states to their unsexed knees, the play has been remixed countless times as generations of artists adapt its core conceit to their own times. So we figured we'd go back to the old Prince of Comedy himself to see what all the fuss is about.Talking points include comedies of bad manners, Ancient Greek props, and the "lioness on a cheese grater."
