Greetings PM Family,
We've got our learning hats on this week at Podcast Movement, as we share with you the full Pro Storytelling Tips series that recently concluded over at PodcastMovement.com. We also have some exciting community updates, including the return of (safe) in-person meetups!
Pro Storytelling Tips
Over the past year, Doug Fraser’s Pro Storytelling series has made an impact on thousands of podcasters in the PM community. Doug’s documentary podcast What We Do can be heard on NPR. And these articles aren’t just ordinary lists of tips! You’ll learn creative problem solving, character building, organization, and more essential skills for better episodes.
