LISTEN!

Summary:
Today we have Kroatz with us; a highly intelligent writer from the Netherlands who explains the concept of the monomyth and how to use it to tighten and improve your story writing. He's so bright in fact that he makes Ozoneocean look rather dim, which is embarrassing for Ozone, but he gets over it. We give examples of how monomyth applies to great movies and books like Scott Pilgrim VS the world, Star Wars, and The Lord of the Rings, just to help you understand it better… totally NOT to confuse you even more. Totally. And yet again we have brave, loyal, and heroic Banes to thank for the clever editing, especially his fine work with the DD soap, which ironically breaks every single rule of the monomyth paradigm.

Kroatz did an amazing job explaining it. It was all 100% new to me.

I live my life solely based on 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' and all of Joseph Campbell's teachings for that matter. It's not like there's a choice, really. Can't wait to listen to this.
