  28. Storytellers is the brainchild of Rashanii and consists of one-part improv and one-part interpretation. Four people take turns, each telling part of a single story, up to 5 minutes. The catch? Each person only hears the part of the story that came right before it, and the stories themselves are randomly chosen through storytelling cards. At the end, the four gather around to listen to the tale together while offering their unguarded responses, praise, critiques, and questions as to why each person chose to go in the direction they did. The result is unpredictable but potentially humorous and thought-provoking. Please let us know what you think. Leave a message at 916-583-8497 or email us at StorytellersPod@gmail.com. You can also reach us on Twitter via @StoryTaleSpin, or through the hashtag #TalesWeTell.
