Use the Hero's 2 Journeys Instead

The ideas in this lecture are covered in "The Hero's 2 journeys." That lecture is a tag-team effort from Chris Vogel and Michael Hauge and covers much more ground. If you have already listened to that lecture and want more of Vogel's ideas, this lecture has a few extra details and a little more depth.

enjoyable listen

I'm no writer, but I have some ideas that I want to turn into stories. In light of that, I thought this was informative. When I start putting pen to paper I will make sure to listen to this again, and take some notes.

In addition, this gives new perspective to enjoying TV shows, books, movies, or other types of storytelling media.
