Storytelling Part One, Betweeen the Lines
Play episode · 41 min

Between the Lines is an "In the Telling" series where the host and guest talk about a storytelling, arts or entertainment industry nonfiction book.

Guest Todd Wente joins host Liz Christensen to talk about Jonathan Gottschall’s book “The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human.”  Recorded prior to this time of "social distancing," this interview has not been published until now, a completely fortuitious circumstance.  This is the perfect time to discuss Gottschall's unified theory of storytelling, how we all need story, how stories contribute and perpetuate our humanity, and to listen to Todd's takes, and even his tall tales, about how stories matter.

Episode Extra, Josh Curtis beautifully shares his thoughts about what he is doing with art and entertainment while working from home and social distancing.
