Dr. Lantern Jack

Lantern Jack (a pseudonym) holds a PhD in ancient philosophy from Princeton University. When not reading old books, he loves to travel and to play music. Exploring ancient Greece combines both of these passions, since the past is a foreign country, and ancient Greece in particular is a musical place.
He hosts the podcast "Ancient Greece Declassified."
