Stories That Made Us

Few things are constant across all humanity and throughout time. Stories are one of them. Some stories we forget, while some stay with us forever. Some are stories of culture, morals, and philosophies that guide us to happy and meaningful lives. 

These are stories of Gods and Demons, of Heroes and Legends, epic battles and wars; stories of fortitude and inner strength, of fighting against all odds and emerging victorious.

These stories inevitably become tales that determine our moral compass, justify norms and mores of our society, and provide a proud self-identity, and a socio-cultural belonging. These become the stories that give us meaning. 

This podcast is about such stories. Those that are deeply rooted within us, governing our morality and principles. So join us on a journey across cultures, tribes, civilizations, and religions, as we identify and discuss those stories that matter. The stories that made us.
