    The Finale

    The Finale

    Welcome, Storytellers. It’s me, Dan. I’ve been your host, your tour guide, your librarian for 125 episodes. That’s 125 legendary storytellers from all walks of life (two repeat guests, but one episode with three guests – do the math). Writers, video creators (including a television show creator), podcasters, social media storytellers, poets, songwriters, business storytellers… what a journey it’s been.

    This… this is the finale. I’m taking a hiatus from the act of creating new episodes to work on something else. Being that this is a hobby I do in my spare time, and I have a family and other activities—including the motorcycle I’m absolutely itching to ride—it’s time to allocate my time somewhere else for a bit.

    Telling Legendary Stories with Christopher Lochhead (#125)

    Telling Legendary Stories with Christopher Lochhead (#125)

    Storytelling from Entrepreneurs to Politicians

    Most of us are tricked into believing that success means fitting in. Following trends. Accepting bad habits. Making people happy. That goes for life, for business and for our storytelling.

    That’s where Christopher Lochhead comes in. Christopher has been an advisor to over 50 venture-backed startups, is a venture capital limited partner and a former three-time Silicon Valley public company CMO, entrepreneur, and co-author of two bestsellers: Niche Down and Play Bigger.

    He’s also creator and host of two juggernaut podcasts, Follow Your Different and Lochhead On Marketing. He’s a master storyteller, even if he doesn’t admit to it.

    “Your success in life and in business will be constrained in part, or enabled greatly, by your ability to tell stories.” - Christopher Lochhead on the importance of storytelling

    Making the Jump to Novelist with Joe Pulizzi (#121)

    Making the Jump to Novelist with Joe Pulizzi (#121)

    On this episode Dan welcomes a previous guest back – only the second guest to return. Joe Pulizzi first joined The Storytellers Network to close out season 5, Inspirational Storytellers. He’s a business storyteller and a “from the stage” weaver of tales. But now he’s added another bullet point to his story: novelist.

    “I listened to Joe’s book when he released it via podcasting and was blown away,” Dan says. “I couldn’t stop.”

    The Will to Die is a suspenseful mystery based on an everyday person solving the murder of his own dad. It’s now available in print as well (or digital download), in addition to the audio version.

    For Joe, it makes sense to make the jump from business books to novels. At the core, it’s all story.

    “The stories that we tell bind us together. It’s probably the most important thing we do that separates us from any other animal on Earth.” - Joe Pulizzi on the power of story.

Best story podcast out there!

It’s great that we have an experienced host focusing on story. Dan really promotes and celebrates story as a learning tool. Bravo!

Dan does a great job of getting to the story behind the story. Stories are a part of everything we do, so it's very nice to listen to people give their insights as to why that is and how they create the stories we love. Dan also has a natural ability for interviewing. He doesn't worry about sticking to the script and knows how to ask follow up questions or just let the conversation go where it needs to.

Dan digs in

I had the privilege of being interviewed by Dan Moyle recently, and he dug in and asked the thought-provoking questions. He mines stories like few others and does a great job as a host!
