Listen to the trailer

Coming in January, a diverse company of Chicago artists will produce new audio dramas—recorded live—and freewheeling audience conversations about them. In Season One, "Grown Folks' Fables", Make-Believe will draw on fables and folktales—sharing suspenseful, moving, hilarious stories, and trying to discover how they shape our world.

Overture: Why Talk About Stories?


As we get ready to release our first audio drama, we talk with Michael Sandel, the "rock star philosopher", who tells us why Americans need more chances to talk about stories--and shows us how it's done. Also covered: the art of listening, upstaging Matt Damon, and the case of Grasshopper v. Ant.
