Every Sunday morning, something magical and wonderful happens, Rachel Smythe (and her amazing team) gift us with another episode of the Webtoon original Lore Olympus. Lore Olympus takes us on a roller coaster of emotion with a retelling of the Taking of Persephone, in which Hades (god of the underworld) takes Persephone (goddess of spring) for his wife. If you haven’t read the Webtoon, go do so. If you have, I have a treat for you! Here are some podcasts that are perfect for any Greek mythology lover.

mythTake: A Fresh Take on Ancient Myth Hosted by Alison Innes and Darrien Sunstrum
