This episode features the first official guest to the 7ms Podcast. During this 7 minute segment I talk with fellow storyteller Shannon Cason. We dive into Shannon’s creative process, what inspires some of his stories and something we hope the storytelling artform can adapt in future. Shannon is a host, MainStage storyteller and GrandSlam champion with The Moth. He is a regular on NPR’s Snap Judgment and was awarded their Best Performance Award. He has appeared on countless podcasts and storytelling stages, including: TEDx, RISK!, Third Coast Festival, Podcast Movement, and an upcoming television pilot. He also hosts his own long-standing storytelling podcast, Shannon Cason’s Homemade Stories.
