1h 29m | Mar 30, 2024

On today's tour, we join our tour guides, Xan and Joe, inside the Museum's gift shop where they discuss the impact, reasons, and purpose of why we enjoy fiction. Pulling from numerous examples such as Stoner by John Williams, the recent film Poor Things by Yorgos Lanthimos, East of Eden by John Steinbeck, and even the AMC series Breaking Bad, they deep dive into how we can identify with fictional characters, and take away powerful messages from reading/consuming fiction.
