I love Greeking out! As a suggestion I propose the story of Persephone and Hades. Also there is Prometheus ( when he gave fire to the mortals and was punished.

Hey, everyone whining about how they need to make more episodes, asking if their going to, or saying they're going to unsubscribe if they're inactive for to long (entitled much?), if you *look* at their history there aren't typically episodes between mid-November & April. Lots of podcasts have seasons. Don't like it? Go make a podcast.
