Brian and Sam enter the Dreaming to discuss the first five episodes of the Netflix show Sandman, based on the comic written by Neil Gaiman. Setting the tale in a dream world gives Gaiman a great deal of freedom in writing. We discuss Gaiman’s brand of storytelling in relation to other Christian writers as well as the Bible, and also the value of being able to write your story into the story of Christ. We also discuss some parallels between Morpheus’ story and Jesus’. Plus, Brian’s garden is formidable, Sam finds Cain and Abel charming, and yes Morpheus is based a little bit on The Cure’s Robert Smith.
