“Everyone has their story. Everyone. And that includes me”. That was the key takeaway from one of the wonderful participants in the #StorytellingWithPuck week for 2021. They weren’t alone with these feelings. From the 140+ stories that people shared across the week, not one was boring. Each story made us feel. Many of the participants this year asked us to find a way of continuing the Storytelling with Puck feeling. We couldn’t deny that request so here, for you, and for us, is the Storytelling with Puck Podcast.
Where does inspiration come from? It comes from stories, of course. Here’s a prime example. Our guest for Series 3, Episode 4 of the Storytelling with Puck Podcast is a powerful storyteller. His medium is the camera. His films highlight the challenges of businesses, their successes, their stops along the way. With every story he tells, he inspires somebody, somewhere to take action. Tim was inspired, in his own right, by a story. Find out more about that by listening today.

Some people know exactly what they want to do at a very young age. Everything is planned out and no stone gets left unturned in making sure that they get there. Jennifer Nunez was not one of those people. Life after school was about taking things as they come. By doing that, Jennifer learned a lot about life and business that is easily missed when we follow a pre-determined path. Still, a marketing degree came calling, a marketing community was to be developed and a move to a completely new continent was on the horizon. Listen to episode 15 of Series 2 of the Storytelling with Puck podcast to find out more.

Isn't it brilliant that we're all so unique? You'll hear Puck Creations talk about the benefits of standing out all the time and we explain that the best way to do it is by defining who you are. You are unique, you are the magic ingredient. Yet, being unique doesn't mean that we need to be alone or lonely. We still have a lot in common with those around us. We can still connect. We can still share the feelings that matter most to us. Harshita Khandelwal writes in a way that helps us to connect on a deeper level and we get to share in her brilliance in episode 14 of Series 2 of the Storytelling with Puck Podcast.

If every day is history, how does anyone choose which history to exhibit in the Canadian Museum of History? There's a lot to it but there is a process.

Oliver as he tells us what it takes to put on an exhibit about Afghanistan during the Afghan war, how he describes the importance of stories in explaining history, why fairies matter and so much more.
