For the God of Bloodlust He's Kind of a Softy, Stories of Ares

It's finally time to look closely at the god of war and gore, Ares, and all the ways he was actually kind of cool. Listen to past episodes on Aphrodite (Apple or Spotify) and Hephaestus (Apple or Spotify) for more on Ares' relationship with the goddess of love. Become a Patron of LTAMB here.

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.
