We brought him onto the show because possibly more than anyone, Sean studies and breaks down stories. That's the basis behind his Out of Frame ( ) content. In this episode, Sean does his best to dissect Stranger Things and why Kevin finds it so objectionable. Along the way, we also talk about the struggles of the Matrix sequels and Suicide Squad. That’s just the beginning, as this we also dive into Sean’s work in creating content around economics that entertains and informs. We break down his popular Out of Frame series and how he approaches pop culture as an opportunity to teach important lessons. From Thanos’ flawed theory of overpopulation to the complexities of the single-buyer markets in “The Boys,” Sean is an expert at using popular storytelling as a teaching tool. The conversation turns back to creator advice as we talk about how to nail that internship as Kevin remembers some personal advice from Conan O’Brien. Plus we pick Sean’s brain for his opinions on how to build a team of confidants you can seek out for constructive criticism and the difference between marketers and creators. In a quick prologue, Kevin introduces an insightful new book, “The Science of Storytelling.” *Join our Patreon to unlock the extended episode, which includes additional, more personal content, including:* * We answer questions from the Idea Baby Gang & Creators * Sean’s crazy time with (probably) Tommy Wiseau * Dealing with hot topics like politics or economics without starting a shouting match * Why are people so hyper-confident about economics? * Engaging audiences in the comments * Matt coins a phrase and impresses Kevin -------------- SEAN W.
