Senior Scholars Discussing the Odyssey

Senior scholars reading the Odyssey from the Greek (Gregory Nagy, Douglas Frame and Leonard Muellner). What impresses me is the easy collegiality and the fact that they are having fun with the text. Apparently there is a series of these which you can access easily from the video. https://www.youtube...
