Randy Olson
“Popular writers like to tell big stories. Scientists like to tell the truth.”
Randy Olson, Connection: Hollywood Storytelling meets Critical Thinking

Adam Rogers
“It’s not enough to admire the pretty bottles filled with varicolored liquids behind the bar. You’re supposed to ask questions about them—what they are and why they’re different, and how people make them. The only people who can get away with going that far down a rabbit hole are journalists, scientists, and three-year-olds. And three-year-olds aren’t allowed in bars.”
Adam Rogers, Proof: The Science of Booze

Adam Rogers
“The miracle of yeast is awesome enough to strain credulity. It’s a fungus, a naturally occurring nanotechnological machine that converts sugar to the alcohol we drink. It breeds pretty much everywhere and is one of the organisms on which scientists have built much of our knowledge of how life works . . . and, postscript, it also makes possible the baking of bread.”
Adam Rogers, Proof: The Science of Booze

Randy Olson
“Story is a set of details about a person’s (or persons’) experience, arranged in a deliberate structure, which gives it specific meaning and universal appeal. Story structure is a process in which a hero does something challenging in order to gain something crucial.”
Randy Olson, Connection: Hollywood Storytelling meets Critical Thinking

Randy Olson
“when there was familiarity with the story, it was the superlatives that had more impact than the specifics. But once the familiarity was lost, the need returns for the power and specifics of the individual narratives. And the more detailed and specific, the more powerful.”
Randy Olson, Connection: Hollywood Storytelling meets Critical Thinking
