BMH54: How Stories Help us Reclaim Our Humanity with Rain Bennett

Graham Brown

Stories are a powerful tool of influence. But, how do you use that influence? Do you use that power to divide and inflame the primal fears of your audience or do you use it to connect and heal? 

In today’s Be More Human Podcast I’m joined by documentary filmmaker Rain Bennett to discuss the power of stories through some of his recent projects including “Raise Up: The World Is Our Gym” and his latest project involving solving a Southern settler mystery that has long been lost to lore and history. 

In this podcast we discuss race, identity, Calisthenics, the Origin Myths of America, Robert F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Fairy Tales, The Godfather, 1984, The Lion King, Donal Trump and many more cultural artefacts and tropes that continue to define modern society.
