Speak Up Storytelling

Jul 8, 2019

On episode #57 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, MatthewDicks talks storytelling!

In our followup segment, I congratulate listeners on recent success at The Moth. 

I also discuss our upcoming shows and workshops: 



Next we listen to Matt's story about a difficult medical decision and what it revealed about his marriage to Elysha. 

Amongst the many things discussed includes:

  1. Identifying the crux of the story
  2. "Why do we do the things we do?"
  3. Finding the beginning of a story by centering on the end
  4. "But" statements in the midst of humor
  5. Tonality
  6. Truth in storytelling
  7. Ending a story effectively (and not stupidly)
