Hi there, this is the Ancient History Hound, a podcast where I look at ancient Greece and Rome and some of the less covered aspects of them. If you love ancient history, tangents and the odd pun then I reckon you'll enjoy it here.

Classical Athens is famous for the introduction of theatre and Tragedy. But it didn't just appear out of nowhere.

In this episode I try and piece together how it developed and ended up as a main component of the City Dionysia at Athens. All this with rude puppets, wild processions, the odd phallus and politics.
