Tell us a story.
TDW talks weed, Game of Thrones, storytelling and speakers using graduations as platforms for political agendas. Julie Soller, creator of StorySlam Oakland, joins us in the studio.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Jenn recently started competing in live storytelling events in Oakland. The stories told at these events, which are facilitated by Julie Soller, are soon to become a podcast. COMING SOON! SUMMER 2016
(Julie actually came into the studio to learn about how we podcast and got swept up into having her own mic. Thanks for being a good sport!)
Julie, Jenn, Dom and Twoser talk storytelling, the delicate nuances of a good tale, and where exactly you need to be mentally to tell about an experience. Julie, as a master gardener, told of her majestic crops and edibles gone wrong. We talk about new progressions in the homeless issue of San Francisco, and how it seems that speakers are beginning to use graduations as platforms for their political agendas despite a possible incorrect audience. You’ll also get to hear the woman who laughed like crazy in a Chewbacca mask and a dad scaring the shit out of his kid with a self-driving car.
