At the beginning was Geraldo. And since the beginning, Geraldo rhymes with mad mundo.

by Patrice Barrat

It is with this "citizen-character" that we first tried , in 1999, a new storytelling approach called mad mundo. Not everybody liked that name : mad mundo. "Not positive enough" was a comment I was getting quite often. As a joke, my answer was : "well, if we succeed with the project, we might change the name into: good mundo".

 

But back then - and till now - I really felt - and I was not alone - the world was going crazy and that a starting point for any new media should be to acknowledge it. While doing so, mad mundo would in its own manner generate hope by siding with people, listening to them, working for them, rather than staying on the side of the Powers that Be or of the "Movers and Shakers", like most of the big media.
