Storytelling - family lore, life and living, laughter and tears.I’m a storyteller. So are you. It is how we connect with other people. Someone will say something, perhaps tell a story of their own, and you respond with “That reminds me of…” and you proceed to tell a story that not only adds to the conversation but provides the listeners with a glimpse of who you are.

Stories by Ordinary People is an initiative to provide a safe place where people can tell their story in an audio podcast. As more and more people participate the stories will cover the full spectrum of what it is to be human, which in turn will provide the context to understand another person or culture.

Just one example is how Stories by Ordinary People got started. Something heard on the news sparked questions about the refugees from Syria who were sponsored to come to Powell River. What was it like to come to a new country with few possessions and not knowing the language or customs?

Using the power of social media, people of every flavor will be invited to share their story and participate in growing the community.

In addition to individual stories, there are regular podcasts that will, hopefully, grow over time. To start that off there are:

Let’s Talk!

Love’s Dynamic

Me, Myself and I;  and

Traveling with Ian
