: In this episode on Greek Mythology, we’ll see how from Chaos came Darkness, from Darkness came Love, and from Love came Light and Day. …Before long, the universe had created the gods! Still, the universe was not ready for Greek Civilization. The barbaric world of primordial violence had to be tamed by the anthropomorphic order of the Olympians. From this Age of Titans to the age of Olympus, we’ll eventually get to the mythic period after the Trojan War. It’s in this setting that Homer relates to us the story of Odysseus and the decade-long road trip that will take him all over the Aegean!
