Ira Glass on Storytelling

Ira GlassSomebody posted these links to one of the myriad mailing lists I subscribe to. I thought I’d share. It’s Ira Glass giving tips to aspiring storytellers. How great is that?

Throw out everything they taught you in high school. Here’s how it’s done. (Finally something worth watching on YouTube.)

  • Part 1 Telling a story vs. writing a story
  • Part 2 Finding the story is as hard as crafting the story
  • Part 3 You have great taste, so you know your early stuff stinks. Don’t quit.
  • Part 4 Be yourself. Take it from a guy who obviously practices what he preaches.
