Happy Thanksgiving to all of our listeners in the United States.
Elysha and I are taking the holiday off and rebroadcasting episode #14, which features the joyous story of Renae Edge.

We'll be back next week with a brand new episode.
On episode #14, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk about finding excellent stories in your everyday life using Matthew's strategy "Homework for Life," including moments that storytellers see but non-storytellers might not.

Lastly, Matt and Elysha each offer a recommendation.
