On episode #43 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk storytelling!
In our followup segment, we talk about a moment on a Moth GrandSLAM stage and a moment in a classroom that unearth two potential stories.
Then Elysha departs, and we listen to Matthew Dicks's story about an unusual late night walk with a friend.
After listening, we discuss:
The best place and most effective way of beginning a story
The importance of beginning and ending a story well
Choosing appropriate backstory and the most effective way of presenting it in a story
Strategies for preserving surprise in a story
Volume and pacing during a performance
