Podcast Extra: Q&A with Sarah Austin Jenness & Katie Cappiello

By Hope Singsen

2 experts in the art of personal storytelling fielded questions from our live audience about how audience interactions with storytellers may contribute to healing -- for the audience, for the performers, and ultimately for the culture. In the process, they shared stories of encountering resistance, the value of empathy and the art of listening, and times that audience interactions could be guided toward transformational encounters.Sarah Austin Jenness, Executive Producer of The Moth -- a 21 year old arts organization and home of The Moth Radio Hour, The Moth Podcast, and over 600 live storytelling events worldwide each year, andPlaywright Katie Cappiello, whose plays about teen sexuality, based on their own first-hand accounts, have been widely toured and praised.Subscribe now.
