Storytelling >

Hello, the Rule comprises Adam Ganong and Philip Hall. We are lifelong friends who have been telling stories all our lives. Podcasting, it turns out, is the medium we have been waiting for to tell those stories. The Rules is a podcast in which we brainstorm, discuss, and follow a specific set of rules to write stories, which we then present in the episode. We are committed to producing quality entertainment and having fun doing it! Thank you.
