Oedipus, You Mother Lover

Released Sunday, 10th January 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
We’re beginning our Greco-Roman triptych with some old-school, familiar flavor: the tragic myth of Oedipus, King of Thebes. Focusing primarily on the plays of Sophocles as source material, Ashley takes us through this wildly histrionic tale from Ancient Greece as we explore the classic struggle between fate and free will. For dessert, we wrap things up by finding examples of this myth’s continued influence on contemporary culture.
