We truly live in historic and fascinating times with the global pandemic still at large across the world.

In this podcast we look at the collective experiences of the COVID-19 through the lens of mythology. Our guest today is Utkarsh Patel, a world mythology expert, author in mythological fiction and professor of comparative world mythology at the university of Mumbai.

His blog “This is Utkarsh speaking” carries wonderful stories and insights into the world of mythology. He is also the founding member of ‘The Mythology Project’ which aims to dig into this rich cultural stockpile, by researching living myths and traditions.
