RHLSTP 291 - Bettany Hughes

#291: Ancient Porn Hub Rich has discovered a dark secret about his wife, but there's no way out now. His guest is best served dripping with honey, it's historian Bettany Hughes. They talk about appearing in a play at university with one of them in their underwear; the transformation of Aphrodite from penis-headed goddess to sexy statue; finding fragments of ancient text; how we can learn about societies from their gods; Pompeiian handbags; following in the footsteps of Odysseus; the island of the old women; and receiving an OBE from the best member of the royal family (and a missed opportunity for Olivia Colman).
