In this podcast Sharon weaves the tale of how the Śrīmad Bhāgavatam was created.
Some time after the war immortalized in the Bhagavad Gita, King Parikshit, grandson of Arjuna, inherited the throne and led the kingdom into prosperous times. Because of this moment of anger in an otherwise virtuous reign, the king found out he was cursed to die within 7 days. He gave up his kingdom to spend his last days in meditation, where he encountered Sukhdev, a sage who spent a week reciting the text to King Parikshit. The king gained salvation by listening to the story.
