Welcome to Myth Matters, a bi-weekly podcast of storytelling and conversation about mythology, and why it’s important to life today.
The old myths and stories have survived centuries of retelling because they speak to the mysteries of life. They are one of the oldest forms of teaching, healing, and community building, and continue to offer these gifts today.
Gain a different perspective on your life and the world. Learn a new way to think, create, thrive, and transform in these best (and worst) of times.
Myth Matters host, Catherine Svehla PhD, shares her knowledge of mythology and depth psychology to bring you into the story circle. She offered this podcast under the name “Myth in the Mojave” for 6 years and 127 episodes are also available under that name.
