→ Why I Created Lore

Aaron Mahnke:

I believe people innately hunger for story. We enjoy a well-told, well-written tale. It allows us to escape for a moment and live in someone else’s world, a world where problems have solutions (most of the time) and  things make sense (again, mostly). Story is in our DNA and it’s our legacy. We evolved from knock-dragging cavemen into advanced cultures, in part, because we discovered the benefits of gathering around the fire at night and telling stories. Shared knowledge, shared experiences, communal narrative. It’s what makes us who we are.

Between this and Aubrey Sitterson’s Skald, I like the direction that podcasts are heading.
