This is where you will find an ever-growing list of resources and recommendations for a deep and broad exploration of mythology, folklore, and other realms we venture into through the podcast. If I have my way, this list will become a sprawling exploration of threads that weave together a stunningly weird archetypal tapestry!
My philosophy is that genuine myth is ever-emerging. There is no true version of a story. And writing it down doesn't make it any more authoritative. Myths flow through us. We do not own them. We only have occurrences to recall, retell, and reflect upon them. With each telling, a myth is born anew.
If you decide to add any of these books to your collection, I encourage you to buy from your local bookstore. If you buy online through the Mythic Podcast Bookshop, you support local bookshops as well as the podcast.
