A lot of the storytelling you consume these days comes to you through digital media platforms. Case in point? You might be listening to the Apple Seed on the radio. It’s a radio show. But you might be listening on the web at byuradio.org, and you might be listening on the BYURadio app. Someone might even have sent you a simple link by email or Facebook or something, and here you are. Digital technologies are making it easier than ever for storytellers to share stories and connect with an audience. So it makes perfect sense that universities are offering courses in digital storytelling. On today's episode, we visit a digital storytelling class at the University of Utah, and we follow them a bit as they created audio stories about werewolves, railroad trains, dating adventures, video games, and more. And, of course, we meet their professor, Natalie Stillman-Webb.
