In Podcast Storytelling Masterclass, we will cover some of the nuances that make your podcast stronger.   The elements for storytelling are specific and dive deep into the actual delivery of the podcast and how to meaningfully connect that material to the audience.   

Stories are how we connect to others.  Storytelling has always been popular but is truly one of the most authentic ways to connect with, keep and grow the audience.  People relate to experiences, good, bad and indifferent.  Facts are not how to engage people, stories are.  But, there are some important elements to know about telling stories in order to maximize their potential in your podcast.  In this section, we’ll cover how to really make an impact with your stories. 

In addition, this course covers the element of storytelling and how to why it’s important to create stories that resonate with the audience as well as key techniques to help the guest, if an interview podcast, tell stories that the audience relates to. 

Every listener hears the story differently.  Each listener has their own experiential and emotional responses with the imagery you present, and so, each listener imagines and responds to your story in their own unique way.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Why stories are important
  • How to use stories in podcasting
  • How to pick the stories
  • How to use stories instead of questions in a podcast interview
  • How to help an interviewee use stories as response instead of simple answers
  • And much more!

Stories are an important tool to connect with the audience.  In order for stories to be the most effective, it becomes key to select the right story for the audience and include the parts that the listener will resonate with and connect to the most.  Stories are also an incredible tool for interviews and getting the best answers and stories out of a guest on the podcast show.

Tracy and Scott are excited to bring you this course. It will improve your Podcasts and help you connect deeper with your audience as your show grows more popular.

Key Phrases to Draw Out the Best Stories in Your Guests

Create a list of things that your audience, your target listener “wants”/”needs” to hear. Once you have the list, think about the stories that you can tell that will resonate with the needs of the listener.

Example: You are a personal trainer. The story could be about the time you were overweight and tired all the time but something made you decide to change, what was that thing?
