Most people think that stories are only for children. Or worse, that classic literature is only for high school lit class or college English majors. In this episode, I introduce an award-winning professional storyteller who has changed all that! He and his wife travel the world while entertaining and educating audiences (young and old) with beloved stories from history and literature.
This is the second of three episodes. In case you missed part 1, click here.
Highlights from this episode on stories:
- what to do when you’ve strained your throat (and you use your voice a lot!)
- what to do when you’re terrible at telling stories (like me 🙂 )
- different ways to tell the same story
- the structure of a story
- the key to a great story
- the importance of story in every aspect of life
