Storytellers: The Gatekeepers of our Heritage

Jack Dublin, teller of tall tales, reads from his journal and discusses the importance of wisely choosing the stories we read. Have you ever wondered why the culture has morphed into what it is today from what it was when you were a child? The answer may surprise you: the gatekeepers of our heritage—storytellers—weaved contrarian tales for the cinema, television and print to achieve a desired end. We are living out that desired end, but we have reason for great hope in this ascending generation.
