Storytelling Breakdown is a podcast deep dive into the way our favorite films, shows, books, games, and more reach us in all sorts of ways. Ben Clemmer and Caleb Meyer, hosts and co-founders of the show, began this pop culture audio adventure recorded in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2019. Storytelling Breakdown debuted in September of 2020 with a six episode first season featuring deep dives into the world of Batman, Spider-Man, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars, and the Hall of Heroes. Season two ran from February to December of 2021 with eleven episodes dedicated to everything from medical dramedies to running role-playing games. The third season of Storytelling Breakdown brought with it some changes to the team. Stephen Stachofsky and Larissa Whitaker joined as hosts, with each one already leading episodes on The Godfather and James Gunn. Now, with a new look and expanded team, Storytelling Breakdown is still a place where we can explore everything we love about the stories that make us who we are.
