Season 2

“Writing Modern Myths” with Ryan Erlandsen

There are two big questions that inform this episode: First, when we trace back the mythological lineage of our modern stories, where in time do we end up? And second, will modern audiences accept and believe old stories if told in new ways? Ryan and I explore these questions along with where ideas come from starting with our shared love for concept albums and music videos. Additionally, Ryan shares stories of collaborating with writers on his latest film projects and what is missing in a 40-page feature film script.
