Storytelling Podcasts >

The concept of this podcast grew from watching movies, documentaries, and reading about people who did things that were in between right and wrong. That grey area where maybe their actions were wrong...but the reasoning or motivations behind them were good...or at the very least, understandable. Do things or people have to be either right or wrong? Good or bad? Why can't something or someone be both? There's also the kind of person who lives a life of misdeeds, but the flair or charm in which they live with causes you to root for them anyway. What is it about certain people that allows you to ignore what they've done? How many people are there like this in real life? With each episode, I'm going to tell you a story about someone whose actions were wrong, but understandable if not admirable on some level. Most of these stories will be factual and some will be fictional short stories written by me. Hopefully they'll all be thought provoking and encourage you to look at a given situation from a different perspective.
