We’re all storytellers, and we capture so much of our life experiences in stories.

Comedian Emmett Montgomery & I journey down a trail of stories that have become religions, Star Trek, Star Wars, the Marvel Universe, and The Matrix? Meanwhile, a thread from Emmett’s exmormon tale emerges making us think we could start cults.
