Theseus and the Minotaur 

Encore Episode

June 1,2023

Episode 122 – originally aired on January 28, 2021

Do you know what a deal is?  Yes, it is an agreement between two people, where one person says if you do this then I will do that.  So have you ever made a deal with anyone?  Did it go the way you wanted it to?

Hello everyone, I am Kathleen Pelley.  Welcome to Journey with Story.

Today’s story is an ENCORE episode of an ancient Greek myth about two deals – one deal is between two kings and the other deal is between a Prince and a princess – and let’s just say, neither of these deals works out quite the way  anyone of them expected.

Oh, by the way, there is a famous monster in this story called a Minotaur, who was thought to be half man and half bull.

Let’s take a journey with our ENCORE episode of Theseus and the Minotaur

So what do you think?  How do you think Ariadne felt when she woke up?

And how do you think King Minos felt when he learned his pet Minotaur was dead?

What do you think this story’s souvenir is – the little nugget of truth about what it means to be human and walk in this world?
