The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a lot of reactions to surface across the globe. Namely, who to blame and what the chief cause was. Some are saying that this is merely the Earth taking revenge upon us. That we, humans, are the actual virus and must be dealt with accordingly.
But is that a true statement? Or should we look at this recent reckoning from a different angle?
These thoughts were catalyzed by a recent interview with Idris Elba, a British actor who had contracted COVID-19, and was giving a statement to the world about his condition and thoughts on why this was happening.

Some time ago, I started a podcast on the power of storytelling. After my feet were good and wet in podcasting, I started doing some episodes called 'The Narrative Wars'. As more time went on, I saw the Narrative Wars coming into its own. I saw topics emerging pertinent to our time. And I saw those episodes as having the potential to stand on their own. And thus, here we are.
This being the inaugural episode, I invite you to take a listen and see if you'd be interested in sticking around. There are narratives all around us. Which are true? Which ones are we supposed to believe? And how do we decide upon what narratives we believe - be it true or not?
This is an invitation into the Narrative Wars!
