I am with you there, Shaahayda!
There is so much more mythic content available today that I have a hard time keeping up (indeed, even in these forums so many posts are of such depth that one has to take the time to digest and absorb them, then let associated thoughts simmer, brew, and bubble up to the surface before even considering posting a response!).
Much as I love Joseph Campbell, it’s particularly rewarding to see the grand mythic conversation expand beyond just his thoughts and observations (I do believe Joe would appreciate that as well): so many more voices in the mix, as we see in the range of authors contributing to the MythBlast essays, and now these myth-oriented podcasts.
I used to rock out to music in earbuds on my daily walks – but now, I’m just as often listening to podcasts. In fact, I pretty much have to walk during Myth Matters and Myth America – both Catherine Svehla and Leigh Melander dive so deep, and their voices are so soothing, that if I listen to them at night in bed, as I do with some history-oriented podcasts, I’d be pulled into the mythworld of dream before completing an episode.
As for Skeleton Keys, that’s such an upbeat, fun look at the mythic underpinnings of popular culture. And then, of course, Joe’s Pathways podcast lectures are pure gold . . .
