Myth America: Live Radio & Podcast

Topical, political, philosophical, metaphorical, Myth America shakes out our sense of who we are in the world.

Join host Leigh Melander, Ph.D., and her guests from around the world as in live and lively conversations as we explore the evocative mythologies that inform who we are.

Myths are the stories that we tell and the stories that tell us.™ They are the metaphors that shape our imagination of the world around us.

The ancient Greeks said that myths were the things that were most and least true simultaneously. Far from just being a lie, myths pulse in the background of all of our lives — our selves, our families, our communities — we tell ourselves stories about all of them.

What are the myths we’re living in and how are they living in us?
