This week we discuss Greek Mythology’s most complicated, snake-haired villain, Medusa. And better yet, enjoy our discussion with the best person to talk about Medusa with - special guest Liv from the podcast Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby! We dive into Medusa’s intense backstory, her appearance in today’s current events and pop culture, and all around bad-assery. It’ll be so shocking, you’ll be frozen to stone.

The poem at the end of the episode was written and performed by Nick Davis.
