The FUTURE of STORY with Dominick and Virginia
May 17, 2024 Season 2024 Episode 11
Dominick Domingo

Have you ever considered that the tales we tell are the very threads that weave the fabric of society? Virginia and Dominick explore this notion, unraveling the complex relationship between storytelling and its pervasive impact on both personal growth and cultural evolution.  Language of the Soul's latest episode is an eclectic mix of discussions around the essence of art, the intricate balance between artistic freedom and societal responsibility, and the subtle ways in which implicit biases color our everyday interactions.

Join us as we speculate about the elusive definitions of artistic integrity and literary value. What truly defines transformative content? We're reluctant to abandon the traditional tenets that celebrate the potency of storytelling, yet cannot ignore how technological advancements and cultural shifts are reshaping them. We challenge the listener to consider distinctions between literary and commercial fiction, between STORY and mere CONTENT and the waning currency of the human touch and artistic merit in the face of Generative AI.

Equally threatening to both freedom of expression and art for art's sake are forces like sanitization, whitewashing, revisionist history and cancel culture. What is at stake when the mainstream loses the sophistication to parse between transformative story and propaganda? The stakes could not be higher in the face of impending fascism. The question is: what are we going to do about it? What types of stories are we going to tell, moving forward? How can we actively co-create with pendulum swings in human dialectic and shape the future we aspire to? In short, what is the FUTURE of STORY?

Now more than ever, it’s tempting to throw our hands in the air and surrender to futility in the face of global strife. Storytellers know we must renew hope daily. We are being called upon to embrace our interconnectivity, transform paradigms, and trust the ripple effect will play its part. In the words of Lion King producer Don Hahn (Episode 8), “Telling stories is one of the most important professions out there right now.” We here at Language of the Soul Podcast could not agree more.
