Ancient Geek 8 - why you need to read the *actual* Odyssey HERE LET ME HELP YOU

In this final episode of the first series, I break down the epic poem into its main chunks and tell you about all the bits in the Odyssey you might not know about because despite being awesome they get cut out of pretty much every adaptation.
