S1 E0 Let’s Get Poppin’!
Welcome to Story Kernels, the podcast that takes a kernel of an idea, drops it in hot oil, and lets it fluff into a delicious snack!
Meet us at the beginning of our story, where two intrepid beings (robot and tree, respectively) set off on a journey of self-discovery, creativity, and delicious snacks—I mean, characters. In this inaugural episode, we discuss what brings us to stories, why we enjoy writing them, and what you can expect as we go on. So, pop some corn and settle in! It’s going to be an exciting ride.
