Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Ep. 50.5 | Crossover with That’s Ancient History Pt. 1

For our bonus episode this month, we talk with Jean, the host of That’s Ancient History, the podcast for all things classical, old and new. As a classics scholar and avid literature lover, Jean shares some of her perspective on the universality and relevance of classic Greek stories to today’s literature and wider culture.

Be sure to check over on That’s Ancient History’s podcast feed for part 2 of our collaboration! (Out September 3rd, 2018)
