On episode #57 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, I talk storytelling!
In our followup segment, I congratulate listeners on recent successes at The Moth.
Next we listen to my story about a difficult medical decision and what it revealed about his marriage to Elysha.
Amongst the many things discussed includes:
Identifying the crux of the story
"Why do we do the things we do?"
Finding the beginning of a story by centering on the end
"But" statements to break into moments of humor
Truth in storytelling
Ending a story effectively (and not stupidly)
