It's no surprise that Jonathan Gohttschall is first on our list—we're big fans. Gottschall is the author of The Storytelling Animal, and he teaches literature and evolution at Washington and Jefferson College in Pennsylvania. This is not a blog in the traditional sense—instead, Gottschall uses his website to collect articles he has written about the science and art of storytelling. His book, The Storytelling Animal, tackles why we, as a species, are wired for stories. Each of his essays takes on this topic from a different angle. The result is a compelling and enlightening discussion about why we, as humans, are biologically programmed to respond to great stories.

Check out his post “The Holodeck is Real” where Gottschall explores why our brains process fictional events like they are real.
