Former Student Happy to Still Learn!

As a former student of both Matt and Elysha, I’ve always hated that I can’t repeat 3rd or 5th grade just to learn lessons on how to be a better teacher or person. So this is a great way to meet in the middle. The stories are beautifully told and it’s a great way to hear stories that you might not have had a chance to hear at their live shows. I’m also hoping to re-hear stories from shows that I have gone to that I loved so much. I like how you can listen to a story and then listen to critiques. It turns you into a listener with purpose. What a great way to start a Monday morning!

Wonderful premiere episode, excellent advice

Few personal skillsets are as helpful, yet underutilized, as the art of good storytelling. I love the premise of this podcast. Beyond Chris’s story, which was a great choice, the advice throughout was spot on. I can already see ways to improve my current work. Most importantly I was entertained while learning something new. I look forward to future episodes from Matthew and Elysha.

Great storytelling podcast

What a great story for the inaugural episode! Can’t wait to hear more and I love the fantastic storytelling tips and ideas! Matt and Elysha have a great back and forth. Looking forward to hearing Matt’s stories. If you love stories from The Moth you will love this and as a bonus learn how to do it yourself!
