Myth America: Radio with Leigh Melander, Tuesdays 9 AM on WIOX Radio
Myth America explores the ways in which myth shapes our sense of self and the world around us (hint: myth is alive and well in the American psych!), with depth and lightness. Sometimes Leigh riffing, sometimes featuring amazing guests from around the world.
Myth America. 9 AM ET on WIOX 91.3 FM or streaming at http://wioxradio.org/
