    **Special Guest Episode on Being a Modern Homeric Bard w/Joe Goodkin**


    In this special guest episode, I am joined by Joe Goodkin, a Chicago-based singer/songwriter, who tours the country performing his one-man folk-opera interpretation of Homer’s Odyssey. We discuss what it’s like to be a modern bard and how that has shaped his understanding of the Homeric poems and ancient audiences, as well as what it means to be “non-traditional” classicists, and what we can do and have been able to do to promote Classics to a general audience and why that is important.
