Author Jeff Garvin and book blogger Dan Zarzana examine books & films through the lens of The Hero’s Journey. Pioneered by world-renowned teacher and mythologist Joseph Campbell, and refined by Disney story veteran Christopher Vogler, The Hero’s Journey is a series of motifs and archetypes that pervade myths, folklore, and stories across all cultures and eras. Each month, Jeff and Dan will discuss a different book or film. And probably, there will be some whiskey involved.

Absolutely fantastic podcast

As someone who loves cinema and books, the breakdown of these movies and books is something to marvel and thoroughly enjoy. I can’t think of any other way to describe it other than to only say that I just absolutely love this podcast!

Love this podcast!

As a former librarian who read Joseph Campbell’s opus in library science school, I cannot help but see all narratives through this archetypal filter. An absolutely can’t stop listening podcast! Please cover Almost Famous!
