The origins of campfire stories span the entire planet. Their importance as a vehicle to pass on culture and historical events can't be understated.
A study of ancient campfire stories in Botswana and Namibia showed that fire allowed people to extend the day and unleash their imaginations with stories. These stories also expanded their minds and helped solidify social networks.
When we sit down and talk with someone about their journey — the highs and the lows — we rediscover the common emotions and moments that propel us through life. These discussions also remind us that there's isn't much new under the sun. We embrace that. Our podcast is the modern campfire.
From our guests to our listeners, we seek out people who are drawn to the exploration of our collective and individual journeys. We specifically engage with amazing people over fifty years old. Why? Their history, their memories, their nostalgia. It's powerful. These are people like you — who definitely have a story to tell.
