Okay, full disclosure, I meant to record this episode first as the introduction to the entire podcast, but then the opportunity to record a conversation with Sian Cornelius came up, and this one had to wait. I do regular storytelling training workshops with academics, scientists and students to help them communicate their research more effectively. Often, I begin these workshops by sharing the tale of ‘Truth and Story’. It’s based on the traditional Jewish tale of the same name. However, this version I learned from the Argentinian-Canadian storyteller, Marta Singh. In an oral tradition, stories continue to travel, continue to shift and change and find new roots and new audiences.
