Two love stories from Greek mythology...because those go so well. The first is the story of Narcissus and Echo, which was doomed from the moment one jumped out of the bushes at the other for a non-consensual hug. The second story is of Orpheus and Eurydice. Orpheus takes the (non-death) early retirement option from his heroics and just when he thought he was out...they pull him back in.

I just heard this episode- did you know there is a musical adaptation of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice? Its called Hadestown and I love it! It changes a few things from the myth, but it also really explores the psyche (not the one who marries Cupid) of the characters. Its going to Broadway this season. I’m a huge fan of this podcast and I’ve been listening for about a year.
Is a transcript of this episode available? this has been my favourite episode so far :)
