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. ????????????

Episode 134: Disturbing the Peace

Episode 134: Disturbing the Peace There?s nothing more certain in life than death. No matter how rewarding or challenging our days on this planet might be, for as long as humans have been around, we?ve viewed death as something akin to slumber, however natural or untimely it might be. But not all that sleep are left undisturbed. ????????

Episode 133: Proof Positive

The human tendency to study the unknown?to dig deep and search for the bedrock of truth at the bottom of the mystery?is one of our most enduring qualities.

Episode 130: In Plain Sight

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