About Them's the Rules

Life is full of rules.

From our societal systems to our interpersonal relationships and everything in-between, there are many written and unwritten rules that influence our philosophies of living.

But who creates them? Why? What are the consequences for breaking them?

Through storytelling, fact-based research, humor, and an open invitation to wonder, Them’s the Rules gets curious about the meaning behind the rules we make and break, forging eye-opening connections between politics, art, science, religion, philosophy, social etiquette, and beyond.
