Great show!

Well worth the listen! I look forward to the next episode 😎✔️

Nerdette fan! ,

Fabulous show and an amazing resource for audio storytellers!

I’m a big fan both of Elaine and her show! Her enthusiasm and insights about audio storytelling are fabulous. The questions she poses to guests aren’t just about the story they’ve told, but about the thinking behind the story structure. You know you love a show, but why? Elaine helps to reveal some of that magic in a way that inspires you to up your own game. I’ve loved everything from her interview with Glynn Washington about hosting Snap Judgement to Johnathan Menjivar and his personal connection to the stories behind Classy.
