How I Crafted A Story – OHS071

Storytelling is an art. From the beginning of early modern human life up to open-mic nights people have loved telling stories and listening to stories. From necessity to pure entertainment a story can pack quite the punch. Whether we are passing down the heritage and knowledge of our culture or simply standing on stage sharing a part of our life, crafting the right story can take some work. Sometimes as speakers and storytellers we have to tell “our story” and deliver our message while crafting it to fit a specific set of standards for certain venues and audiences. This podcast cast shares how I crafted a story about an experience to fit the Story Story Late Night venue in Boise, Idaho.

Thanks for listening! I invite you to share this podcast, offer a comment, or leave some feedback.
