Welcome to Episode 20. We’re taking a short break from our usual episodes to listen to Chapter 1 of the upcoming audible book, Homo Divinitas.  It has the same Greek gods you love, but they show up in the modern world where they meddle and maneuver as they always have.  Homo Divinitas is the third book of The Winnowing trilogy. All three novels are about the Greek gods and goddesses. In Chapter 1 you’ll meet Timessa, a nymph who has been transformed by Gaia into the original Great Goddess from 40,000 years ago.  The Great Goddess was and is more powerful than any of the Greek gods. Increasing the intrigue, the original Greek deities have also reappeared in our world, and they don’t know what to make of Timessa. We meet her after she has become the most famous fashion model in the world. Timessa—now the Great Goddess as well—has just given up her career to live on Naxos, an island in Greece. This is lucky for us because she was having a harder and harder time balancing both roles. She had become a danger to all.  Note that the trilogy, which include The Winnowing, Cycladic Girls and Homo Divinitas, is adult reading. This reading of Chapter 1 has been slightly modified for listeners of all ages.  Our next episode returns to ancient Greek gods. Expect to hear about the Sphinx—not the Egyptian version but the divine sphinx that terrified the Greeks by posing impossible riddles. Those who failed to answer correctly were promptly eaten alive ... Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/garnersgreekmythology)
