Bombings, shootings, suffering, shouting—these are tough times. World events are often hard to understand and feel our way through, and along the way life hands us personal struggles and catastrophe.

The old myths and stories can help us gain perspective and get fresh ideas about how to make our way through what Keats called “this vale of soul-making.”

Myth in the Mojave is 30 minutes of storytelling and conversation about mythology and why it's important for our lives today, created and hosted by Dr. Catherine Svehla.

Thanks for listening and keep the mystery in your life alive.
