Episode 26B – The Face that Launched a Thousand Seamen

This week on MYTH, we’ll be getting to know the famous lady who kicked off one of the great epic wars of the ancient myths through no real fault of her own.  You’ve probably heard of the infamous Helen of Troy at some point, if only to know that she was somehow involved in the Trojan War, but there’s a lot to her history even before the war that’s weird, wild and worth a listen.  You’ll learn that women have always been blamed for things that aren’t their fault, that Zeus did some seriously twisted things, and that there’s a surprising amount of crossover between some of these different stories.   Then, in Gods and Monsters, it’s one of the few genuinely sweet loves stories I know from mythology, which felt fitting with Valentine’s Day coming up.
