Welcome to our new website!

I am SO pumped to finally release this episode. Emma is a world-class director, writer, world builder, and amazing human. Her screenplay "The Water Man" caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey and is now airing on Netflix.

She is currently the Head of Story at the well-known company Tally Labs, which are the founders of the legendary projects that birthed the Writer's Room (Jenkins the Valet), the story Bored and Dangerous written by Neil Strauss, and the new web3 world of Azurbala. 

We discuss so many fun topics, which include her motivation to want to get into storytelling, and the differences between telling stories the traditional way vs. in collaboration with a web3 community. We have a great monologue on what makes art memorable and discuss the DEPTH of the legendary world of Azurbala. I am so excited for you to listen to this one; I didn't want it to end!
