ON-LINE JOURNAL - "The Benshi"

After critiquing the value of blogs in his book, Randy Olson created The Benshi to be what he calls his "on-line journal." It differs from a blog in that there are no comments sections, only two essays or interviews are posted per week (every Monday and Thursday morning), and all content, while written by Randy Olson, is edited by Ryan Mitchell. The central purpose of The Benshi is to delve deeper into the topics addressed in "Don't Be Such a Scientist," with the most important focus being on the use of narrative structure and storytelling as a means of reaching a broader audience with science.
