Here’s a quick look at the best of the stories we’ve been sharing the past few days…

John Colaruotolo, our colleague in Dallas, recommends last week’s installment of NPR’s TED Radio Hour. Says he: “It was a bunch of pieces about storytelling.

This podcast is worth adding to your ‘read’ (or listen) list for next week!” It is a terrific episode, looking at best practices in storytelling from many different angles. You can find it here.
