Episode 139: Heirloom

The way we treat the past is a great lens into the character of humanity. Sometimes we elevate it, but all too often we work to bury it.

Episode 136: The Third Time

Folklore is our legacy. We humans have carried it with us everywhere we?ve gone in the world, and it anchors us to our roots and our community. But it also does something else: it gives us a place to hide our fear, to put it on a leash and control it. And there?s one story in particular that does that better than most. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: We?ll always get the future wrong, so you better get life insurance right.

Before cell phones and internet access, learning about the world around us took a lot of time.

We tend think of rivers and lakes as tame. They are the safe and friendly counterpart to the deep and treacherous waters of the ocean. Freshwater rivers and lakes give us life, after all.
