(Monday 15th July 2024)

When watching live, you can increase the quality of the video to 720p by pressing the ‘settings cog’ button on the video menu. You can also unmute and change the volume.

The Conversation series finale sees the rockstar classicist Natalie Haynes celebrate the goddesses of Greek myth in her new book Divine Might. Here are Hera, Athene and Aphrodite in all their vengeful superpower and the brighter gifts of Hestia, Demeter and Persephone. The swaggering dash of Beyoncé thrown in reminds us of the contemporary weight of Natalie’s retelling of feminist perspectives in the novels A Thousand Ships, The Children of Jocasta, The Amber Fury and Stone Blind and the non-fiction best-seller Pandora’s Jar. All eight seasons of the BBC Radio 4 show Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics are available wherever you get your podcasts. Chaired by Peter Florence.
