016: The Building Blocks Of Imagination

What happens when you revisit the stories you read as a child? On this episode of Pathfinder, we encounter what happens when you break through nostalgia and take another look at the tales that built your imagination.

This week on Pathfinder it's part two of our series unpacking what defines our perception of nostalgia. What better way to understand how our connection with stories starts than turning back the clock to look at children's stories.

We look at why stories might not be seen in the same light you remember them, why sometimes analyzing things a bit too closely isn't the right thing to do, and understanding how storytelling for children is a far different thing than writing for adults.
