002 - The Greek Genesis

In this episode, we take a look at Creation, according to the Greeks

Deals with the creation of the universe, the primordial gods and goddesses, the Titans, the monsters, and the Olympians.
A farmer's almanac instructing his brother in the agricultural arts and offers extensive moralizing advice on how he should live his life; it also contains a mythical etiology for the toil and pain that define the human condition--the story of Prometheus and Pandora.
Attributed to Hesiod, although this is not certain because it is similar in style to the Theogony, but the subject of this poem is the genealogies of the women who bore the heroes and legends of Greek myths
