Show Notes

Humans have told stories for tens of thousands of years through cave art, the narration of myths and legends and in written form. Storytelling is more than just entertainment, it forms the basis of culture and our socially constructed reality. In this episode we explore storytelling and try to understand why it makes us uniquely human.
