LXVII: Woman, Survivor, Murderer, Euripides’ Medea
Where all Medea's fame lasting relevancy comes from: Euripides. Plus a beautiful song about Medea written/performed by listener Alison Rush (alisonrush.com, Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3CcXbd6MSK0XikfdOmwZ7I?si=9Cy4EX6hSMeVQLTRimmcHA).
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.
