This week myths and folktales take the stage in their basic and abstract forms. William Hansen recounts ancient Greek and Roman folktales from his collection, "The Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends, and Myths." Wendy Doniger joins us in talking about cross-cultural mythologies surrounding rings and their connection to love and sex as she writes about in her recent book, "The Ring of Truth."
