V: Theseus, Ruiner of Women and All Around Awful Person

This week's episode covers the "hero" Theseus and all his epic and varied awfulness. There are many variations to the Theseus mythology, I've picked one. Highlights include: bandits, Hippolyta queen of the Amazons, Ariadne and our friend the Minotaur! Also spoilers for Wonder Woman!

A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. 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.
