    Bonus: Bob Rogers and Deep Story

    To follow up on her interview with Joe Rohde, former Disney Imagineer and experience architect of Virgin Galactic, Maya talks to Bob Rogers, the man who puts the ‘B' 'R’ in ‘BRC’. Founder and chairman of BRC Imagination Arts, Bob is our Master of Storytelling. 

    Over the course of his 50+ year career, Bob has developed two patents, has won over 500 international awards for creative excellence with BRC, including two Academy Award nominations. In 2006, Bob was honored with this industry's highest honor, the Themed Entertainment Association's Award for Lifetime Achievement. He's been inducted into the IAAPA Hall of Fame and has served on the Board of Directors of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences. Bob was also invited by NASA to help develop its master plan for the exploration of Mars and later awarded him the NASA Public Service Medal. 

    Writer, innovator, teacher, scholar…Bob has many things, but we tend to think of Bob as a magician. He's made a career making people smile, suspending our disbelief long enough to help us forget ourselves or maybe to find ourselves.

    PART II — Joe Rohde: Exploration, Deep Research, & Narrative Placemaking

    PART II — Joe Rohde: Exploration, Deep Research, & Narrative Placemaking

    Joe Rohde is an artist, explorer, and creative executive. Over the course of his 40 year career with the Walt Disney Company, Joe worked at Imagineering, the creative arm that designs and builds everything from cruise ships, theme parks, rides and attractions, hotels, and infrastructure systems for the company's theme parks and resorts. During his tenure, he oversaw several projects, including Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa, Expedition Everest, and Pandora, the world of Avatar. 

    Joe is now retired, but still takes on projects like his work a strategic adviser with Virgin Galactic, one of a handful of companies aiming to commercialize space travel. He joined the company in early 2021 as the first experience architect.

    The astronaut Buzz Aldrin once said, “If we can see the horizon, we want to know what's beyond.” As you’ll hear, Joe is someone for whom travel has been transformational, driving his curiosity and desire to see, hear, smell, feel and taste the thing he wants to know. In this episode of Masters of Storytelling, Maya talks to Joe about narrative placemaking, deep research, and the public responsibility of the storyteller. 
     
    In an effort to keep each episode a reasonable length, we’ve split this interview into two parts. This is part two.

My Favorite Themed Ent. Podcast

There are several 'Themed Entertainment' Podcasts out there. Many of them focus on Disney or Universal, which is great in its own right. But 'Masters of Storytelling' focuses on telling the stories behind the storytellers and what drives them in their creativity. Easy to listen to and applicable across many disciplines, this podcast is inspiring and hopeful.
