CV: Poetess of the Ancient World, Sappho (with Ellie and Alyse of the Sweetbitter Podcast)

Finally, Sappho! Along with Ellie and Alyse of the Sweetbitter podcast devoted to her, Liv discusses Sappho, the very real Greek poet and overall badass woman. Make sure to subscribe to the Sweetbitter podcast where ever you listen, or visit Liv is on their show talking Aphrodite on December 24th.

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.

Sources: Diane Rayor's translation of Sappho; the play mentioned is The War/The Desert/The Labyrinth, 15 Heroines, put on by the Jermyn Street Theatre in November of 2020 (it's amazing).
