152: Harris III - On Creating a Magical Experience for Your Audience
Harris III - magician, producer, creative guru - and the man behind the now practically infamous STORY Gathering that I continually rave about here on the show. Yes, that's right - I went straight to the source to hear about how it all came to life - and how to create something both uncommon and universally moving - a challenging feat. I've had so many guests on the show that were inspired by my experience at Story - Jason Jaggard, Brad Montague, and now Harris. Hank Fortener - a favorite with my listeners - was also there last year. And it was first introduced to me by my guest Lindsay O'Connor who read some of Story's marketing materials for her This Moved Me Moment, and I gasped with awe for the beauty of the writing. That's what I'm talking about: beauty, creativity, risk, identity, community. These themes swirl in and around the STORY crew, and it makes for an experience that will nourish your soul and challenge us to do work that really matters. You guys - I realize that much of this sounds like a commercial for STORY. They are not paying me to say any of this. I get no kick back from this. I am just a real, live FAN because of my experience last year - and I want to see you there! AND! And! And. (I'm excited. Can you tell?) Since I recorded this conversation, Story has asked me to be a part of the experience in September. Live coaching, anyone!? Aw yeah. So - Let's do this!
