SIM Ep 375 Chops 161: Antigone Rising with Helen Morales

What can we learn from the ancient Greeks? And what should we probably unlearn from them? In this episode, Jen chats to Professor Helen Morales, classicist and Argyropoulos Chair in Hellenic Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They chat about Helen's new book Antigone Rising: The Subversive Power of the Ancient Myths and how ancient misogyny still underpins modern society, as well as some pilgrimages to Dollywood, among other things.
