In this final mini series of interviews, we go for something different. Singer/songwriter Arlene Paculan has performed at Stories We Don’t Tell and been a friend of the event since the beginning. Paul goes on location with Arlene, talking with her about storytelling through music. We included the song Arlene played at Stories We Don’t Tell, and if you like it (and we know you will), check out more of Arlene’s music at her WEBSITE.
For the next few episodes, we’ll be going behind-the-scenes with storytellers that have performed at Stories We Don’t Tell. Stefan Hostetter sits down with Luke Anderson for some story workshopping. We then transport into the future to hear Luke’s most embarrassing moment(s). Learn more about Luke’s work with the StopGap Foundation.
For the next few episodes, we’ll be going behind-the-scenes with storytellers that have performed at Stories We Don’t Tell. Stefan Hostetter sits down with Elisa D’Arcangelo in the Stories We Don’t Tell Studios to talk about her experience and to hear her story.
Stefan returns! He talks with Paul about what will be happening on the next few episodes. We’ll be bringing in storytellers who have participated in the Stories We Don’t Tell live event and interviewing them about their process. To get the ball rolling, Steven and Peter interview each other and share a story.
Paul and Stefan talk (probably too long) about movie sequels. The Matrix sequels are bad, The Godfather sequels are good. They finally get around to talking about how we can take control of our personal narratives through storytelling. Vivek Jain tells a life-affirming story about a traumatic accident that happened to him as a child.
David Hostetter shares a story about an acid trip with the help of Rhys Morgan on the saxophone. Stefan and Paul talk about using musicians to help tell a story, the fallacy of wanting to share drunk tales and how to make internal stories interesting to an audience.
Stefan & Paul talk about mixing fiction and reality and how a performer can use this to get at a deeper truth. Paul starts off the episode with a story about buying a keyboard. Stefan shares a fictional story about a future world that might be all too real.
Stefan & Paul discuss what’s been happening since the podcast has been off the air, reflect on two years of the live event and how much they miss Brianne. Speaking of Brianne, she shares a story about recent changes in her life from the Stories We Don’t Tell two year anniversary extravaganza.
