    Abstract:
    In this episode, John and Gina Turrigiano speak with Madeline Miller, author of the critically acclaimed bestseller Circe. They discuss Circe's place in Greek mythology and in a retelling of the Odyssey "from below" or "from the side," the concept of "mythological realism," and the influence of The Once and Future King on Madeline's writing. They touch too on the sweet family aspects that show up in Homer, and on Odysseus's changing reputation throughout time. Then, in Recallable Books, Madeline recommends I, Tituba: Black Witch of Salem by Maryse Conde and The Two Noble Kinsmen by Shakespeare.
