EPISODE 38: Words Have Power Pt 2-Reshaping the World Through Writing

Hello again, everyone! On this episode, we talk about how powerful writing has helped to reshape this crazy world that we live in. We start with ancient times and the parables of Jesus and the writings of Aesop and then do a little time hopping back into our current era. We discuss how modern writers have helped to shape our current ideology (Well, at least in this country anyway.) You’ll also hear our thoughts on banned books, why these works were banned,  and the type of people that call for such a grievous act. That’s As you might have guessed, we’re just a little opinionated on this matter. In fact, we’ve included a short list of banned books that we believe are worth your time and investigation:

  • Brave New World.
  • Of Mice and Men.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird.
  • The Catcher in the Rye.
  • The Harry Potter series.
  • Fun Home.

Don’t worry, we’ll have our regular segments — Ask the Muse, Method to the Madness, and Feed The Fire — as well as another helping of inappropriate behavior.
