S2 [8] BALLOON BOY

What Really Happened? - November 7, 2018 - 58:22

A 6-year-old boy was stuck in a hot air balloon that happened to look like a flying saucer, 7,000 feet above ground, flying over Colorado. Cable news channels had a field day. And, when the balloon landed, something didn't add up. Ultimately in this episode, a professor predicts what won't happen in years to come, an Academy-Award nominated filmmaker unravels where he's going, and a storytelling guru helps make sense of "breaking news" as Jenks sorts out... what really happened? Guests: Matt Heineman (Academy Award nominated filmmaker: The Private War, Cartel Land, and City of Ghosts), Robert McKee (author, lecturer, story consultant), and Bob Thompson (Trustee Professor of Television, Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University)
