The eastern phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) is a small passerine bird. The genus name Sayornis is constructed from the specific part of Charles Lucien Bonaparte's name for Say's phoebe, Muscicapa saya, and Ancient Greek ornis, "bird". Phoebe is an alternative name for the Roman moon-goddess Diana, but it may also have been chosen to imitate the bird's call.

(Intro & Piano music) There are mentions in Ancient Greek texts of a plant's root used to ease Asthma and inflammation. It grows in Northern Greece(among other places in the world) and there's even a village named after it. Γλυκό means 'sweet', ρίζα means 'root'. The word travelled to Italy and then France-where the spelling used in America comes from. In fact, both spelling were used until the 1700 where the British spelling took over for a couple of centuries before it got separated for good; there's also a pronunciation inconsistency, the word doesn't end with 'sh' but still, that's how we pronounce it and that's because, in Cooper's Grammatica Linguae Agglicanae that was published in 1685 it was written that way. This word has a fascinating pronunciation history in the States and I highly recommend reading all about it. ΓΛΥΚΟΡΙΖΑ/LIQUORICE

Although the era of the Enlightenment witnessed the rise of philosophical debates around benevolent social practice, the origins of European humane discourse date further back, to Classical Athens. The Ancient Greek Roots of Human Rights (U Texas Press, 2021) analyzes the parallel confluences of cultural factors facing ancient Greeks and eighteenth-century Europeans that facilitated the creation and transmission of humane values across history. Rachel Hall Sternberg argues that precursors to the concept of human rights exist in the ancient articulation of emotion, though the ancient Greeks, much like eighteenth-century European societies, often failed to live up to those values. Merging the history of ideas with cultural history, Sternberg examines literary themes upholding empathy and human dignity from Thucydides's and Xenophon's histories to Voltaire's Candide, and from Greek tragic drama to the eighteenth-century novel. She describes shared impacts of the trauma of war, the appeal to reason, and the public acceptance of emotion that encouraged the birth and rebirth of humane values.

I find it very fitting that with this 50th episode we are now transitioning into a new phase of Greek history. A point that is often officially seen where the Archaic Age ends and the Classical Age starts, its also where we say goodbye to Herodotus as our main foundational source and welcome in Thucydides. While it is also a major transitional event in the Greek world coming away from the Persian invasions, with all of the political and diplomatic developments that would occur leading to conflict from within the Greek world. Though, before picking back up the narrative, I wanted to provide an introduction to this period we will be spending quite some time with. To do this I have invited Prof. James Romm on the show to help give us an introduction to Thucydides and the subject of his history, the Peloponnesian War. I had decided to reach out to Prof. Romm as I had recently come across a book he was involved in titled “The Greek Histories” with came out this year. This work is focused on providing an introduction to a number of Ancient Greek writers, of who Thucydides was one. So, I felt this was perfect timing given where we were currently in the series.   James Romm is an author, reviewer, and the James H. Ottaway Jr. Professor of Classics at Bard College in Annandale, NY. He specializes in ancient Greek and Roman culture and civilization. His reviews and essays have appeared in the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, the London Review of Books, the Daily Beast, and other venues.

In Ancient Greece, the symposium was no ordinary after-dinner drinking party, but one in which the Hellenic men of society got together to wine, recline and philosophise. They took various forms depending on the whim of the leader of the symposium - the symposiarch - but were exclusively male affairs (aside from the occasional courtesan or two).In this episode Tristan is joined by Michael Scott, Professor of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Warwick, to find out more about the soirée of booze, babes and slaves that was the Ancient Greek symposium.We mention a few different vessel types.

The Greek city of Miletos in western Anatolia would be described by Herodotus as being the ornament of Ionia. This referring to the affluence of the city during the Archaic period and its position amongst the many other Greek cities in Ionia. In this episode I am joined by Prof. Vanessa Gorman who takes us through the history of this wealthy and influential city. We begin by covering the earliest periods of history around the site of Miletus, which leads us into the Bronze Age and the various connections the city had. We then look at the period of the Bronze Age collapse in the region and the period afterward that would see the arrival of the Greeks from mainland Greece. We then look at a city that would become one of the most affluent within the Greek world during the Archaic period. Before we then turn to the decline of Miletus on the backdrop of the subjugation to the Lydian and then the Persian Empire. We then finish off with a bit of an overview of the city after the Greek and Persian Wars before then ending with a look at an open-source language course developed by Prof. Gorman.  Prof. Vanessa Gorman received her PhD in Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania in May 1993. Since then, she has held various position as associate professor and associate dean, where in 2015 she became Professor of the Department of History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a position she currently still holds. In 2021 she also took on a position in the Department of Classics and Religious Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.Prof. Gorman's areas of expertise lay within the areas of Greek History and Historiography; Greek Language Pedagogy; Philology and Dependency Syntax and Digital Humanities. While she also focuses on Republican and Augustan Roman History and Roman Historiography.For Prof. Gorman, language was a huge part of her journey into understanding the ancient world to where she would become proficient in reading Ancient Greek, Latin, German, Italian and French. Her realisation of the importance of language also saw Prof. Gorman create an open-source course available to all called Reading Ancient Greek in the Digital Age.Links to Prof. Gorman's work:Greek Lanuage Site:https://vgorman1.github.io/Greek-Language-Class/ Digital Publications:Greek Dependency Treebanks:https://github.com/vgorman1/Greek-Dependency-Trees  https://perseids-publications.github.io/gorman-trees/ Books:https://www.amazon.com/Miletos-Ornament-Ionia-History-B-C/dp/0472037773/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1648058469&sr=8-1https://www.amazon.com/Corrupting-Luxury-Ancient-Greek-Literature/dp/0472052292/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1648058524&sr=8-3Edited Volumes:https://www.amazon.com/Oikistes-Constitutions-J-Bibliotheca-Supplementum/dp/9004125795/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?crid=1BCPSW0TOAWFZ&keywords=o+Oikistes%3A+Studies+in+Constitutions&qid=1648058666&sprefix=o+oikisSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/castingthroughancientgreece)

IMMORTALITY - Peter Ward Science and Technology Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcasts.  Today's show is brought to you by Hapbee.   Our guest today is Journalist Peter Ward.  Peter Ward has a new book for our audience of The Not Old Better Show, titled The Price of Immortality: The Race to Live Forever. Join me and Peter Ward for an exciting interview about his new book, The Price of Immortality: The Race to Live Forever, as we explore in the idea that there is a time in the not-too-distant future when biotechnology will be able to keep people alive indefinitely.  Obsession with longevity is nothing new, Peter Ward tells us, but as science has advanced, “immortalists were faced with a scenario most thought would never happen: they might be proved correct.”  As longevity medicine revolutionizes the lives of many older people,  the quest to take the next step—to live as long as we choose—has spurred a scientific arms race in search of the elixir of life, funded by Big Tech and Silicon Valley.    Once the stuff of Mesopotamian mythology and episodes of Star Trek, the effort to make humans immortal is becoming increasingly credible as the pace of technological progress quickens. It has also empowered a wild-eyed fringe of pseudo-scientists, tech visionaries, scam-artists, and religious fanatics who have given their lives over to the pursuit of immortality.  Let's listen to a reading from Peter Ward and his new book, The Price of Immortality: The Race to Live Forever, as he describes Ancient Greek mythology and longevity. Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcasts, journalist Peter Ward.   My thanks to journalist Peter Ward for his time and expertise today.

What is freedom? Is it possible to truly make free decisions? How does this relate to the political concept of tyranny? In a world where freedom is often seen as one of the highest ethical priorities, it's worth taking a closer look at what freedom really is. Questions about freedom have been pondered since the beginnings of humanity, including the Ancient Greek philosophers Socrates and Plato offering analysis on the topic that is still relevant today.  Read Book IX of Plato's Republic here: http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/republic.10.ix.html Support the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/reflectinghistory Reflecting History on Twitter: @reflectinghist If you like the podcast and have 30 seconds to spare, consider leaving a review on iTunes/Apple Podcasts...It helps!
