Gather Around

Hordes of storytellers from around the world are descending on Kansas City over the next few days for the National Storytelling Conference. How do we craft better stories and why does the way we tell stories matter? We find out why this ancient art is still in vogue today.  Plus, a story from last February's Flame KC event.

Guests:

The National Storytelling Conference starts July 21 at the Marriott on the Plaza.

Mike Rice's play, John and Leslie Are in the Copy Room Again, will be at the Fringe Festival, July 22-30.
