Mythology and the Age of the Heroine

Maria Tatar - Jung in the World Podcast with Patricia Martin
WITH MARIA TATAR
Renowned folklorist and Harvard scholar Maria Tatar joins host Patricia Martin to discuss her latest book, Heroine with 1,001 Faces. In this interview, Tatar unearths the forgotten legacy of the heroine’s quest, which parallels Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, and illuminates the social significance of the heroine as an archetype for our times.
Jung in the World Podcast

Jung in the World Podcast

The idea for the podcast was hatched as collaboration with the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago. We launched in 2020, just as COVID descended. I had just relocated from Chicago to the Michiana woods and leapt at the chance to break new ground. Now in its 3rd season, the Jung in the World podcast has earned more than 1 million downloads. Our mission is to bring the work of Carl Jung into contemporary life. We hope it makes a difference in yours.
