In a program titled “The Power of Story and Science,” you would expect there to be some science behind the storytelling. And there is! Host David P. Otey lays the groundwork for this new podcast by describing the role oxytocin plays in prompting the audience to feel empathy for you, the speaker. He also describes the importance of having a Specific Purpose and of understanding the speaker’s role in the Grand Bargain. He closes with a preview of future episodes, which will come every two weeks or less. Tune in if you want to discover the power of having your audience on the edge of their seats, even when presenting a technical topic. Because, really, isn’t that what presenting the story of your work is all about?
