BTW 63: Sirens, Medusa, and the Beings of the Underworld with Liz Andres
Today we have a special treat for you in our conversation with museum professional and scholar Liz Andres. Here we discuss Liminal Beings, those mythical creatures who dwell between the worlds, of life and death, above and below, in the wilds and in the human realms. Often, they appear as hybrid creatures, half human half animal, like the Sirens or Medusa, like the randy adventurous Centaurs of yore. These beings break through binaries - they are disrupters, destabilizing the reality we thought we knew all too well. When we find them in myth, they are often magical holders of the mystery traditions, and embodiments of the unknowable and the beyond. Sounds delicious, right! Join us!
