Yes, I love science fiction. It is by far my favorite genre. But even more foundational than my affinity for this wonderful genre is the fact that I love storytelling. For anyone who knows me, that's pretty obvious. Storytelling is what I do for my day job (documentary film) and my side hustle (sci-fi novels, short stories, this log, and a podcast). So yes, I love storytelling. But turns out that there are deep reasons storytelling has been an integral part of every human society through the ages. It's because storytelling is the native language of our brains. In the latest episode of Exploring Tomorrow, I unpack how doing research into neuroscience while writing my novel, Sleepwalker, ended up teaching me just how essential to our survival storytelling really is. So, get ready to geek out for a bit, because I'm about to dive into a crash course on science of storytelling.
