“Bad stories don’t just distort our belief system; they act to prevent more truthful stories from being heard.”
To kick off Season 2, we stepped away from our usual format of an individual sharing their story and instead analyzed change alongside an expert. Steve Almond is the author of 10 books, including the New York Times bestsellers Candyfreak and Against Football.
In this episode, we discuss his newest book, Bad Stories, which he describes as “a literary investigation of what the hell just happened to our country.”
