Circe: Part Three

A lot of questions and healthy debate over our boy Trygon. Cool or no? Tell us your thoughts by tweeting us @DCitaBC or commenting on our subreddit r/dontcallitabookclub. Now that Odysseus has gone down can we call some of his stories into question? We've got some theories on what really happened on the journey home. Make sure to read the beginning of Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe for next week!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Circe: Part Two

Very relatable rant today that all cooks will appreciate (skip to 5:10 if you've never cooked anything and just want to hear about Circe). Can we take just a few things off Daedalus's plate? My guy is the Greg Jennings of the Greek world. Oh c'mon, how do you not get that reference? And we know Circe's got a tough job trying to raise her son in these trying circumstances, hear some of our suggestions.

Circe: Part One

No spoilers today so if you haven't read up to chapter 11 stay away! Although if you're someone who can get spoiled by this book we want to hear your story, tweet at us with the hashtag #GreekSpoilers. A lot of strange sexual fantasies in this book so far and we focus on some you may have overlooked: Is Prometheus enjoying himself? Are there hot barnacles?
