Speak Up Storytelling

Oct 22, 2018

On episode #22 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk about finding excellent stories in your everyday life using Matthew's strategy "Homework for Life." They discuss how a moment can not only be storyworthy for the stage but might be useful in many other contexts in life.  

Next, we break format. Rather than listening to a story and critiquing, we decided to clear out the mailbox by dedicating this episode to listener questions.

We answer questions about:

  1. Telling other people's stories
  2. Storytelling etiquette
  3. Homework for Life best practices
  4. The verbal detritus than can sometimes accompany storytelling
  5. The importance of stories being relatable

Then we end the podcast from a remarkable clip from a popular Netflix series.
