I was interested to see what Had Abumrad had to say about storytelling as he was saying he was a radio host. Considering that it seems like the radio is going “out of style” or maybe on the decline, Jad seems to think that his job is only around still by mere luck. His own personal opinion is that radio should have been under many years ago, but he theorizes that because radio lacks a picture, people enjoy the audio storytelling to allow their own imaginations to create the picture.
I found it most interesting when Jad gave an example of how the audience uses their imagination to visualize the things he says and that image is drawn by his vocal stimulation of the intended audiences brain. That point resonated well with me especially when he followed it by saying that he sees his job almost as an ancient ritual of being a story teller.
