Scott Simon, NPR Weekend Edition Saturday host, spoke at TEDx MidAtlanic this week on the importance and meaning of stories. There does not appear to be a version of his presentation that I can embed in this post, but you can find by clicking here. You should do so.
Ira Glass, of This American Life discusses “The Art of Storytelling” in a set of 4 videos on YouTube. The first one – “On the Basics” – appears below. I came across this on Garr Reynolds’ blog. In his blog piece, Garr distills the lessons of the videos.
The other videos can be found here:
