CXLII: No Crime Have I Committed, Save to Speak the Truth: Cursed Cassandra.
10.26.2021 - By Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! Greek & Roman Mythology Retold
Oh, cursed, cursed Cassandra. The princess of Troy is an enigma whose story is told in disjointed fragments that this episode weaves together. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
