Stories That Made Us

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.

S2 E17: Heroines & Heroes - JewishTale - Adam and Eve: The Conclusion
This episode is the finale of the three-part Jewish tale of Adam and Eve. Check out the previous two episodes before you listen to this for more context. In the first episode, we spoke of God’s intent to create man and angels’ opposition to the love and freedom of will and conscience that God chose to gift mankind. We spoke of the creation of Adam, of the existence, nature, and the journey of our souls, and in doing so, we spent time talking about the disposition of an ideal man – and the nature of Adam. The second episode recounted the nature of an ideal man, the story of Satan, the creation of Lilith and Eve, and then we spoke of Adam and Eve’s life in Paradise – in the garden of Eden; and then concluded that episode with the fall of humanity as we ate the forbidden fruit.The story this week continues from here. It has been collected and recounted from the book titled “The Legends of the Jews” by Louis Ginsberg.

S2 E15: Heroines & Heroes - JewishTale - Adam and Eve Part I
Hi There! Welcome to another episode of Stories That Made Us. This episode, and in the next two, we tell the Jewish tale of man’s creation, disgrace, punishment, and expulsion from the garden of Eden – it’s the story of the first of humanity – it’s the life and times of Adam and Eve. This myth requires no introduction, and so, without any fanfare, let's get straight to the story, which has been recounted from the book titled “The Legends of the Jews” by Louis Ginsberg. Details are in the show notes.Reference:Title: The Legends of the Jews Volume 1Author: Louis GinzbergURL: https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1493/pg1493.htmlWe're active on social media.

S2 E14: Heroines & Heroes - Native American Sioux Tale - Two Young Friends
10-08-2021
S2 E14: Heroines & Heroes - Native American Sioux Tale - Two Young Friends
We’ve got a fantastic tale from North America this week, a myth of the Sioux people of MidWest United States. The Sioux nation is one of the largest Native American tribes, consisting of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota tribes. They traditionally lived in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin, but were forced to migrate west to the great plains by the French and the Ojibwe tribes.The Sioux of old were a nomadic people who roamed the great plains, following buffalo herds throughout the American Midwest. Buffalos being an important part of their culture – responsible for food, clothing, houses – or teepees and many pieces of jewelry. The people believe in Wakan Tanka, the great spirit. This represents the power or the sacredness that resides in everything – both living and inanimate. Storytelling, as with almost all Native American tribes, is an important part of the Sioux culture. Tales, indeed, legends were passed down from one generation to another as tales told around the bonfire. This story is one such tale. Recorded in the early 20th century by Mrs. Marie McLaughlin, and in her own words, “ told in the lodges and at the campfires of the past, and by the firesides of the Dakotas, these tales are the thoughts of a grave, and sincere people, living in intimate contact and friendship with the big outdoors that we call Nature; a race that is humble, but honest and fair; a sincere, and gravely thoughtful people, willing to believe that there may be in even the everyday things of life something not yet fully understood; a race that can, without any loss of native dignity, gravely consider the simplest things, seeking to fathom their meaning and to learn their lesson”Reference:Title: Myths and Legends of the SiouxAuthor: Marie L.

S2 E13: Heroines & Heroes - Tales from Japan
Hello! Welcome to a brand new episode of Stories That Made Us. For this week’s tale, we head over to the land of the rising sun, the mighty country of Japan.Japanese myths have traditionally been passed down through oral traditions, for through most of Japan’s history, its communities were predominantly isolated from one another. This allowed for local legends and myths to grow around the unique features of the geographic location where the people who told the stories lived. We shall find examples of this throughout our four tales, where the stories are tied tightly to their geographic regions.The two main sources for Japanese myths that are most recognized and widely known are the texts of Kojiki and Nihon Soki or Nihongi. These ancient texts delve into the creation of the Gods and the world, and from there, continue to cover the origins of the Japanese people and the monarchy.Old listeners would have listened to the tale of Japanese creation myth in Episodes 35, 36, and 37 of the first series. Those tales were all taken from the Kojiki and Nihongi, and are a marvelous account of the trials and tribulations faced by Gods and Goddesses as they shaped the world we live in today.This week, we have four tales from this beautiful land, all courtesy of the book titled “Old World Japan – Legends of the Land of the Gods” by Frank Rinder. Details of which are below.Reference:Title: Old-World Japan: Legends of the Land of the GodsAuthor: Frank RinderURL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/46863/46863-h/46863-h.htmWe're active on social media.

S2 E11: Heroines & Heroes - Greek Myths: Pygmalion and Phaeton
This week, we recount the tales of Pygmalion, and then, of Phaeton. These stories were initially told and propagated orally, with evidence of Minoan and Mycenean bards singing songs of Gods and heroes way back in the 18th century BC. Pictorial depictions of these tales were popular too, featuring prominently in vase paintings and decorations.The first story we recount today is that of Pygmalion, which is a tale of a prominent King and sculptor of Cyprus. It is recorded in book 10 of Ovid’s Metamorphoses – and the story you’re about to hear now has been taken from the book titled “A Book of Myths”, authored by Jean Lang.

06-07-2021
S2 E10: Heroines & Heroes - Native American - Seneca Story of Genonsgwa
This week, continuing with our theme of Native American folklore, we recount the Seneca tale of Genonsgwa, or the stone giant. Now to put the story into context, the Genonsgwa, is the name of a mythological rock giant of the Iroquois-speaking tribes, of whom the Seneca are a prominent part, living south of Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes in North America. In some tribal traditions there is only one such stone giant, while in others, there is a whole race of them. These giants are descibed as being about twice as tall as humans, with their bodies covered in rock-hard scales that repel all normal weapons. They are associated with winter and ice, and they hunt and eat humans. In some legends Genonsgwas were once human, and became cannibal monsters as a curse punishing them for evil deeds, like the Windigos of Chippewa mythology. In other legends, Stone giants were never human, but were a tribe of primordial man-eating monsters.Reference:Title: Seneca myths and folk talesAuthor: Arthur C.

Welcome to a brand new episode of Stories That Made Us! This week we recount a wonderful tale of the great Algonquian hero – Nanabozho. Keen listeners and old followers of the podcast would remember Nanabozho – for he played a grand role in the creation of the Anishinaabe world – helping the great spirit – the Kitchi Manitou to build our world and populate it with all beings – making everything the way we see it today. Check out episode 6 of the first series for that awesome tale. Now, this episode continues with the tales of this great hero of the Native Americans of the great lakes. Anthropologists and scholars, those who study the Anishinaabe Adizookaan – traditional storytellings – believe this hero to be a trickster spirit, a culture hero that features prominently in the traditional folklore of the many native American tribes of the great lakes. Often appearing in the shape of a rabbit or a giant man – as is the case in this tale – he is a shapeshifter and is responsible for teaching mankind all the good things we know.This story is one of his many tales and has been taken from the book titled, “The Indian Fairy Book – From the Original Legends” by Henry Schoolcraft.Reference:Title: The Indian Fairy Book From the Original LegendsAuthor: Henry R.

S2 E3: Heroines and Heroes - The Mabinogian: Culhwch and Olwen Part III
Welcome to the third episode of a brand new series of Stories That Made Us. This second series is all about the Heroes of mythology. It's the stories of conquests, love, wars, and heartbreaks; the tales of men and women who, through their bravery, conviction, integrity, and strength, created the moral and social constructs that govern our lives to date. Once the world was created, as discussed in the first series, it fell to heroes and heroines to guide the race of mankind to be a better version of ourselves. These are those tales. The inspirational stories of courage, selflessness and justice that were passed down to us by our parents and grandparents. We, in this episode, conclude the famous story of Kilhwch and Olwen, which is a classic hero quest during the times of the great fabled British King Arthur. The story is translated from the book - THE MABINOGION. Now the Mabinogion is one of the earliest compilation of stories to have come from the British isles. Written in around the 12th and 13th centuries, these tales provide a fascinating glimpse into pre-Christian British life.The book we refer to is free for use and distribution and can be found in Gutenberg.org. Check below for more details on the book! It is, as you would find out, an intriguing read!Reference: Title: The MabinogionAuthor: Lady Charlotte GuestTranscribed from the 1849 edition text by David Price, email ccx074@pglaf.orgURL: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/5160/5160-h/5160-h.htm#page5I hope you enjoy the tale.
