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 ...

The splendidly evocative ruins of ancient Rome have long been a challenge to historians and archaeologists in reconstructing how it looked and functioned. It became the largest city in the western world during the imperial period, so how was the city constructed, and what were the materials used? How was it defended, supplied with food and water, and how were the people housed and entertained, and above all, how did it function? These video tracks use various famous sites such as the Baths o ...

Oh, far-shooting Apollo... What are you exclusively the god of, anyway? All things Apollo, the good and the very, very bad. Submit your questions to Liv's 2022 New Year Q&A episode here.

People cling to quick and easy solutions during tumultuous times. One of the quick and easy solutions people are infatuated with these days in censorship.

You can never stop being yourself, but people sure will always try to remold your personality in their image nonetheless.

The old saying goes that the best things in life are free. But today you would think the best things in life are dirt cheap.

Everyone loves to debate. Unfortunately, everyone also hates to listen. So, usually what happens during a debate is that two people who start off acting like adults, quickly get frustrated and begin shouting at each other like a couple of teenagers fighting over where to eat for lunch or who has the best taste in music. "Yeah, but like you don't un…
 
Josh sent this question in for Murray to ponder over. During the Roman period, we have evidence of reasonably specific units based on (original) area of recruitment, e.g. *Legio IX Hispana*, *Cohors Germanorum*, and so on. I was wondering if we have anything similar for the Hellenistic/Successor period. Outside of names that were originally geograp…
 
Both optimists and pessimists are incorrect. Life is good. Life is also bad. And, yes, life can be downright horrifying to look at.

We often are forced to listen to celebrity "success" stories.

We have all been there before. We comment on some ludicrous action taken by a person with different political views than ours and then, like clockwork, some chuckle head chimes in, “You’re just repeating the narrative of the mainstream media! You need to do research!” Well, actually, I did plenty of research while I was in college and I still do an…

The Christian fundamentalists and their quasi liberal mystic cohorts are bringing Satan back and in a big way.
