In our follow up segment, we discuss the events taking place in our country right now and how we hope to begin moving in the right direction. We also discuss upcoming shows and workshops, all online!



In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about the power of contrast when trying to turn a moment into a story.  

Next we listen to a story by Roszena Haskins.

Amongst the many things we discuss include:

  1. Shifting tones in stories

  2. Pausing 

  3. Explanation reveals with humor

  4. The power of the "but"

  5. Preserving surprise
