What makes you put off sleep to finish one more page in the novel you are reading? What snags your attention to a movie in a darkened theater filled with popcorn munching strangers? Somehow a connection is made between you and the story on the page or on the screen.  You transport to a shared realm of imagination.  And if the storyteller is good the immersion is seamless. The Storytelling Connection complete. Rob and Bill discuss recent pop culture attempts at creating this connection. Laird Barron’s Man with No Name, Zach Snyder’s Batman v. Superman, Dan Trachtenberg’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, Will Arnett’s Flaked and Doug Petrie & Marco Ramirez Daredevil Season 2 are all explored by The Abysmal Brutes this episode.
