On episode #32 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk storytelling!
In our followup segment, we talk about new workshop dates and links, an email from a merchant marine, and a girl crush on Elysha.
In our Homework for Life segment, we talk about finding and collecting stories while visiting familiar locations and how some of them could be stories.
Next we listen to Tom Reed Swale's story about love on a college campus.
After listening, we discuss:
The power of self deprecating humor
The best places to start stories
Capturing mood and tone through inflection
The hazards of cultural references
Avoiding the de-activating of your audience's imagination
Next, we answer questions about telling stories that cast people in a negative light and the possibility of two people sharing a stage to tell a story.
Finally, we each offer a recommendation.
