About this Event
Podcasts are for telling stories. As podcast listeners we, can’t help but imagine ourselves in the shoes of the characters we learn about in the stories we hear because storytelling fuels empathy. But it takes more than questions to draw a character out from behind the mic. You need a surprising set of skills to tell stories for the ear. Learn how to harness the power of emotions to tell impactful stories.
