Welcome to The Ancient Greeks podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This ninth episode looks at The Olympian Gods. In order for the Ancient Greeks to make sense of a chaotic universe, the immortal gods were used to explain the forces of nature and the human experience. The greatest of these gods lived atop Mount Olympus, ruled over by Zeus the thunderer. They were passionate, spiteful, jealous and insecure beings that both loved and despised humanity. In this episode, you will learn about the twelve most important Greek gods. What each of them had control over and their awesome godly powers.
