Great Podcast for story tellers

I'm really excited about this podcast. its entertaining and informative and really helpful for anyone who wants to tell sotires in any medium. Higly recomended.

Are You a Story Maker?

If you make stories, or want to make stories then you should listen to Jessica Abel. Why? Because she is listening to other makers, and she knows how to break it down. Also, she does not just talk to great storytellers, she turns this into a real class. You get homework. You can participate and actually be part of the podcast. Plus, it's cheaper than graduate school.

If you just want to sit back and glean knowledge you can. She has a great voice, and there is a good soundtrack, and she knows how to change pace from monologue, to old tape, to two way interviews.

So, want to make good radio? Listen to a cartoonist.
