Episode 10

Writer and Story Grid Editor Rebecca Monterusso believes in the balance and beauty of gray zones. In this episode of Story Effect, Abigail Perry and Rebecca discuss how various characters in Rebecca’s fantasy favorites–the Marvel Universe, Harry Potter, and Dr. Who–exemplify this belief, and why using stories to embrace empathy in humanity’s imperfections will change the world for the better.

Listen to this episode to reflect on the balance of good and evil in all of us, and how we can use stories to better understand and accept all people and circumstances. Email Abigail at abigailkperry [AT] gmail [DOT] com to continue the conversation.
