This is a podcast about storytelling. Our lives are our stories, written and shaped by the stories that surround us. Sometimes, we come across a story that stays with us forever, for one or another particular reason. I want to find out what that reason is, or rather, we will find out together. Hopefully, in the process, it will help us appreciate the power of a story and in turn, help us create better, higher quality stories ourselves. Ready to begin?

Interesting take on pure storytelling.
I like the fact that this is not a podcast about film or just novels etc but a podcast about storytelling in general no matter what art form. Great first 2 episodes! But also looking forward to episodes on good novel and short stories. Very insightful presentation.
