On the podcast this week Sylvia Shults returns in the role of Ghost Hunter to tell us more amazing stories. The topic for our discussion is Urban Legends. The term, as used by folklorists, has appeared in print since 1968. Jan Harold Brunvand, professor of English at the University of Utah, introduced the term in a series of popular books starting in 1981. He published the book, The Vanishing Hitchhiker: American Urban Legends & Their Meanings, to make two points: first, that legends and folklore do not occur exclusively in so-called primitive or traditional societies, and second, that one could learn much about urban and modern culture by studying such tales.
