Episode 8 - SPECIAL EDITION: Dr Maxine Lewis on Catullus

This is a very special episode, the longest ever by far, in which I have a conversation with a friend of mine, Catullus expert, Dr Maxine Lewis. We discuss what we like about Catullus, problems of interpretation, approaches to Latin literature, and dealing with difficult topics in the classroom. I hope you enjoy this, and a big thanks to Maxine for speaking with me!

Warning: some explicit language (in the context of a translation of the first line of Catullus poem 16).
