Righteous Babe Radio
by Habibullah Saleem
This week: Grand Rapids, MI 07-18-2005
This week: Myth Matters - Quest for New Metaphors: The Sumerian Myth of Inanna, goddess of Heaven, goddess of love, sensuality, beauty, procreation, and war.
Myth Matters is a bi-weekly podcast of storytelling and conversation about mythology, and why it’s important to life today. The old myths and stories speak to the mysteries of life. They are one of the oldest forms of teaching, healing, and community building, and continue to offer these gifts today. Gain a different perspective on your life and the world. Learn a new way to think, create, thrive, and transform in these best (and worst) of times. Myth Matters host, Catherine Svehla PhD, shares her knowledge of mythology and depth psychology to bring you into the story circle. This episode, released 11/27/21, tells the ancient Sumerian story of Inanna's descent to the underworld in an iconic myth about a psychological and spiritual journey of great significance. There's loss and suffering in this story. And there's a return to new life. Find out more about Joseph Campbell Foundation and the MythMaker Podcast at JCF.org This conversation will air Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12pm and 5pm CDT.

LETTERS FROM AN AMERICAN
Heather Cox Richardson is a professor of American history. Her newsletter explores what it means, and what it has meant, to be an American. These were the same questions a famous observer asked in a book of letters he published in 1782, the year before the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur called his book “Letters from an American Farmer.” We will broadcast a recording of the daily letters at 6 pm, 11 pm and 8 am the following day CST.
You can find the Letters and more about our Resident Professor here: https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com
