Our scope is international, our concerns are universal
The role of the storyteller is to keep their eyes open, while everyone else’s are shut. We are cultural watchdogs. We stand at attention, observing and reflecting. We excavate, uncover, interpret and unravel. We look inward and then outward to find ways to better understand ourselves. We are protectors of tradition and shapers of new ones. We are recyclers, innovators and ultimately…entertainers.
We all savor the first time we stumble upon language and ideas that invite us into the space of another and expand our notion of ourselves. Our creative mission is to bring evocative, character-driven storytelling to unusual and otherwise untold stories. Podcasts are a new and exciting form to us, presenting infinite possibilities for deep and nuanced first-hand reporting and untapped archive.
