Why story? Stories slow us down; minimize risk; connect us; help us feel less lonely or "abnormal"; bring light to shadowed places; make science accessible; help decision makers feel the real effects of their choices; and capture the truths of diverse experiences, solutions, struggles, and joys.
Guest: Screenwriter, singer, actress, storyteller Mariangélica Duque on storytelling; her move from Bogotá, Colombia, to Santa Barbara, California; and creating story in a new place.
