Arachne Weaves Her Tragedy & The Cursed Legacy of Thebes
First, Liv reads a selection from the new translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses, by Stephanie McCarter, because it's ARACHNE and it's AMAZING. Then, the cursed legacy of Thebes, the stories of Ino and Semele.
CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
