Deborah Beck's podcast

Musings in Greek Literature is a collaboration between Professor Deborah Beck and students of ancient Greek in the Department of Classics at the University of Texas at Austin. Each season focuses on an ancient Greek poem that the class is studying, with most of the episodes written and recorded by the students. We hope you enjoy thinking about these ancient poems with us as much as we enjoyed creating this podcast!
