Myth America™: Ideas That Light Your Fire

The stories that we tell. The stories that tell us.™

What makes us think what we think? Believe what we believe? Value what we value?

Stories. The big stories and metaphors that sit in the background of our consciousness and our culture and shape how we understand ourselves and the the world we live in. They are indelibly shaped not only by who we are, but where we come from. Myth America looks at the metaphors and myths that emerge from the American psyche.

Join us on Myth America to explore those stories, those metaphors in a rich, evocative conversation.  After four years being broadcast live on affiliate NPR, we are delighted to share that Myth America is now available as a podcast worldwide. Check out the latest news and episodes!
