The Urban Myth is the subject of this week's show.
Why do we tell eachother such stories? They're always so extreme and fantastic that, really, the rational mind knows they can't be true. But not only do we tell them anyway; we, in fact listen to them as well. Maybe these fantastic set of circumstances just might be real afterall!
The Urban myth has alot in common with traditional myths and folklore, in the way they satisfy a need for storytelling. It may be that the Urban Myth expresses a feeling that we live in a world that might actually be in total chaos.
I'm going to start with a 20-question Quiz to test your knowledge of Urban Myths. I'll give you the answers later in the show.
Then we'll explore what we actually do know about Urban Myths, and we'll take some time to listen to some pretty creepy ones as well.
Hope you enjoy the show!
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include The Last Dance: "Do You Believe in Angles"; Wendy Rule: Psyche's Sisters"; St Vincent: "Severed Crossed Fingers"; Scott Helland: "Smoke Signals"; Audra: "What Your Eyes Had Seen" and more.
