Storyteller with Lisa Golden


The Hero’s Journey with The Matrix | Storyteller Basics

Season 2

We’re trying something new over at Storyteller HQ!

After the success of the Story Spine episode, host Lisa Golden and Cathie Swan from Queer Creatives UK are back to cover some of the most interesting storytelling basics!

This week we dig into The Hero’s Journey. This storytelling framework is part theory, part philosophy.

Lisa takes Cathie through the 12 steps of the Hero’s Journey, using the 1999 blockbuster hit The Matrix as an example. 

How does one of the most famous storytelling tools show up in Hollywood, why do our mentors need to be mystical and is this all linked to psychedelics or the Men’s Rights Movement?
