RHLSTP 291 - Bettany Hughes

#291 Ancient Porn Hub - Rich has discovered a dark secret about his wife, but there’s no way out now. His guest is best served dripping with honey, it’s historian Bettany Hughes. They talk about appearing in a play at University with one of them in their underwear, the transformation of Aphrodite from penis-headed goddess to sexy statue, finding fragments of ancient text, how we can learn about societies from their gods, Pompeiian handbags, following in the footsteps of Odysseus, the island of the old women and receiving an OBE from the best member of the royal family (and a missed opportunity for Olivia Coleman).
