Episode Description:

In Mission 138 we take the Mother Ship under the sea to explore mermaids with author, Varla Ventura! For centuries seafarers have whispered, talked, and sang songs to the legend of the mermaid. A half fish, half woman, she appears not just in Disney films alongside singing crabs, but in the folklore of America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. These creatures show up again and again in popular culture and fiction, but also lately on video clips and in photographs. Are they just myth, or is there something more to them? We discuss Ventura's new book, Among Mermaids: Facts, Myths, and Enchantments from the Sirens of the Sea, and don't miss spinning Egyptian statues in the news!
