Due to a frustratingly renewed interest, we're revisiting the Deconstructing Atlantis series.
Today's episode features conversations from last year's Deconstructing Atlantis series: with Flint Dibble, David S. Anderson, and Steph Halmhofer. Check out Flint's twitter relevant threads: Atlantis in current pop culture, the dangers of Atlantis "lore", erotic vases. Follow David, and Steph on Twitter.
Further Reading: Plato’s Timaeus and Critias, quotes translated by Benjamin Jowett; A Brief History of Atlantis: Plato’s Ideal State by Stephen P. Kershaw (includes alternate translation of Plato); PDF: Truth, Lies, and History in Plato's Timaeus and Critias by Thomas K Johansen, 1998.
CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
