Introduction
by Bill Kouwenhoven

As the late British philosopher Peter Winch reminded us, we human beings are social animals, and we are wired through our DNA to communicate through shared rituals. Regardless of where we are born, rituals concerning birth, marriage, and death bind us. Comparative social science and cultural anthropology may tease out nuances between cultures, but these milestones of human life mark us equally as human beings, though in different ways.

The medium through which these rituals are articulated and passed down through generations is the telling of stories regardless of the medium used. Indeed, as technology has evolved from talks around the fire and cave paintings to the Victorian hearth and the broadsheet, through radio and television, to the Ipad and Youtube, the necessity of storytelling remains the same.
