Welcome to Satura Lanx, upper beginner / intermediate podcast told in beginner-friendly, easy spoken Latin. Every other Saturday I chat about everything concerning Latin (literature, language, culture), my own life and reflections and the questions you’ll ask me. The same episodes are available in full video format on my YouTube channel. This is a Satura Lanx production.

Liv speaks with author and classicist Natalie Haynes about all things Medusa and Natalie’s new novel about the tragic Gorgon, Stone Blind.

In this bonus episode, Liv speaks with Michaela Smith who handled the research for the special Sparta series. They talk about researching for the show, and the ancient world in general.

‘Sorting’ Out Your Day:

Today on the Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar:

[Saturday] If it thunders today it portends good deliveries in childbirth for women

[Sunday] If it thunders today it portends many deaths and  unusual winds.
