We will be exploring eight of Jesus’ parables over the coming episodes from three angles: the historical context at the time, the spiritual teachings Jesus was communicating, and universal life lessons we can apply today regardless of religious beliefs. Our goals are to introduce listeners to Jesus through how he taught via stories, show the practical wisdom found in the Bible, and foster engagement and discussion among the podcast community. We encourage listeners to leave comments and questions to help grow the podcast and engage the listeners. In the story of the week section, we discuss an upcoming Elon Musk biography and talk about developments with the Wagner Group in Russia.
The world of “story” has captivated humanity since the dawn of time. The oldest known form of communication, verbal storytelling is responsible for the continuity and development of civilization from its most primitive moments to its most advanced. Story invokes a sense of mystical wonder, but is also a powerful medium for communicating real and concrete ideas that shape people’s lives and make them take action. Steve Schramm (Marketer, Non-Fiction Writer, and Story Nerd) and Alex Giguere (Fiction Writer, Wannabe Game Designer, and Story Nerd) join forces as worlds collide to discuss how “story” is the most powerful concept ever known, and how it interacts with each and every aspect of our lives — from the most magical to the most mundane.
