Mike Ganino (@mikeganino) joins me to talk about the importance of stories, what makes a good story, and how to become a better storyteller. We dig into personal mythology and why it matters and how stories help us make sense of our life. We also explore an interesting twist on classic fairy tales.
I also share about my Disney princess identity-crisis and Mike talks about his days spent clowning. This episode is filled with fun!
