Paul and Stefan talk (probably too long) about movie sequels. The Matrix sequels are bad, The Godfather sequels are good. They finally get around to talking about how we can take control of our personal narratives through storytelling. Vivek Jain tells a life-affirming story about a traumatic accident that happened to him as a child.
David Hostetter shares a story about an acid trip with the help of Rhys Morgan on the saxophone. Stefan and Paul talk about using musicians to help tell a story, the fallacy of wanting to share drunk tales and how to make internal stories interesting to an audience.
Stefan & Paul talk about mixing fiction and reality and how a performer can use this to get at a deeper truth. Paul starts off the episode with a story about buying a keyboard. Stefan shares a fictional story about a future world that might be all too real.
Stefan & Paul discuss what’s been happening since the podcast has been off the air, reflect on two years of the live event and how much they miss Brianne. Speaking of Brianne, she shares a story about recent changes in her life from the Stories We Don’t Tell two year anniversary extravaganza.
