On episode #5, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk about finding excellent stories in your everyday life using Matthew's strategy "Homework for Life" and the importance of transformation in storytelling. 

Then we listen to Renata Sancken's story about her adventures in ghost hunting, followed by commentary and critique, including:

1. The authenticity of the storyteller

2. Telling a story in scenes

3. Extending the arc of the story

4. Controlling your audience's wonder

Elysha and Matt also answer a listener question about anecdotes and offer recommendations.
