Mark and Andrew reunite in Colorado after months of separation and launch into a deep discussion of the stories we tell that make up our lives. In a nod back to Episode #2, they explore the narrativity of experience, the loss of story that can become a loss of identity, the problems with mobility and the lack of solid storytelling in contemporary family life. They talk about the value of journaling, letter-writing and keeping up on local news as well as the cultural import of local song-writing and story-making. Bedouins, autobiography and long-term frienships also make an appearance.
