Do you love myths, legends, and folklore -- gods, heroes, monsters, fairies, elves, magical artifacts, and wild adventures that are also journeys of the soul? Then Mythic may just be your jam.
Host Boston Blake weaves the fantastical into the ordinary world, connecting ancient archetypes to contemporary life. Media, culture, and the mundane become magical when viewed from a mythic perspective.

I was in the library, reading every mythology book I could get my hands on.Speaker:
It all started with Wonder Woman, then Clash of theSpeaker:
Titans, the good one from 1981.Speaker:
And I was hooked.Speaker:
What started as a childhood fascination became a lifelong obsession.Speaker:
My name is Boston Blake.Speaker:

If you're listening to this trailer, there's a good chance you're alreadySpeaker:
aware of the massive catalog of mythology podcasts out there.Speaker:
Well, this one is a little different.Speaker:
My guests and I, we geek out on our favorite myths and legends, but what'sSpeaker:
more important is how they've impacted us and why they matter so much.Speaker:
I believe that these fictional stories contain cores of truth.Speaker:
That can help us live more meaningful and fulfilling lives.Speaker:
And it's not all Hercules and Thor and a bunch of calcified tales carved into clay.Speaker:
These archetypes live in modern media, in superheroes, in marketing and branding,Speaker:
in nearly every movie and TV show.Speaker:
And in our daily lives.Speaker:
In Mythic, we look at all of it.Speaker:
