Welcome to Episode 26, THE THREE HELENS This episode features the story of Helen of Troy, also known as the woman whose "face  launched a thousand ships.”  She was beautiful, but ended up being a pawn of the gods in the Trojan War. The effort to rescue her actually changed Greek history by being the impetus to unite the Greek city-states.    As often happens in these tales, nothing is as it seems. In this case, we learn there were at least three versions of the story, but none of them work out well for Helen. Narrated by mythologist and best-selling author, Patrick Garner, Garner's Greek Mythology is unlike any other Greek history series.  Here these divine beings are viewed as if they were anything but mythical… New stories about the gods!  Homo Divinitas, by podcaster Patrick Garner, is now available on Amazon as an audible book!
