Everyone has heard of at least one Greek myth, even if they’re not aware of it. Whether it’s Perseus slaying the snake-haired Gorgon Medusa or Theseus pursued by the Minotaur in the Labyrinth or Icarus attempting to fly, Greek myths are part of our cultural fabric. But if you want to actually familiarise yourself with these tales of old, where do you start? Classics lecturer Thomas Flynn discusses this question with literature lecturer and host Dr Colin Dray in this episode of Campion Conversations.
Ever wondered how Marvel movies relate to Nietzsche? Or what Netflix might have to do with existentialism? Campion Conversations is the official podcast of Campion College Australia and the place to hear our academics discuss pop culture and, occasionally, current affairs in light of the humanities.
