Useful for Editors and Writers Alike

This is a second generation application of Shawn Coyne’s method of understanding why a story works and where to adjust it if it doesn’t. The podcasters prepare, so our listening time isn’t wasted. Their explanations of how each story “fits the Grid” teach or reinforce the method of dissecting storytelling, whether that week’s story happens to be your genre or not. Sometimes they even explain in such a way that I gain entry into an SG concept that I didn’t quite get before. Finally, they pepper their discussion with connection points to other story-masters, so we see the universality of story structure. IMHO you should subscribe to this podcast because it’ll improve your writing and/or editing craft.

Great show for learning about a genre

I’m an editor and I love this show. It’s really helpful to hear breakdowns of iconic stories. I will be using these episodes to help clients understand what readers will expect from stories in the genre they write in. What plot points do they need to hit? How can they progressively raise the stakes? What does it take to have a satisfying ending? This podcast is kind of like a cheat sheet for editors and writers.


Big fan of story grid and the story good podcast. This is a great way to find out more of those mandatory scenes for storytelling. Everyone is really on their game here!
