Humans live inside stories, large and small. Some—like cults, and industrial civilization—set traps so fierce we rarely escape them without crisis, or collapse. How can we recognize those stories for what they are? Demolish them, and build better replacements? Join Sharon Mesmer (Annoying Diabetic Bitch), Tracie Morris (Who Do With Words), Helen Zuman (Mating in Captivity), and Sparrow (How to Survive the Coming Collapse of Civilization) for a lively discussion, moderated by Liars' League host Andrew Lloyd-Jones, of options for understanding our shared story-power, and taking it back.
