Show Notes

Premise is everything when it comes to shaping a strong show. It allows the audience to understand immediately where they’re headed, which brings us to 2 Pages with MBS, a podcast where brilliant people read the best two pages of a favorite book…a book that has shaped them and changed them. Host Michael Bungay Stanier chats with authors, leaders, activists, academics, entrepreneurs, change agents, and celebrities as they dig into the ideas that matter the most.

Inside today’s episode, as timely as ever, Jay and MBS discuss tackling interviews from unconventional angles, challenging their guests to speak from the heart, and how to get straight to “the personal” as well as captivating ideas.

MBS has written books that have sold about a million copies all told, including The Coaching Habit, a self-published book that’s become the best-selling book on coaching this century. He founded a training and development company, Box of Crayons, that has taught coaching skills to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. And he’s been been named #1 Thought Leader in Coaching and a Coaching Guru.

Camp Monsters: Audio as a Visual Medium (ft. Weston Davis)

Audio as a Visual Medium is a paradox in many ways. But when done well, writing for the ear, editing and sound design can create a visual world through audio. Camp Monsters from REI…yes the brand, is a perfect example of this. Written, hosted and narrated Weston Davis, Camp Monsters features as they put it “stories of impossible encounters with impossible creatures in the wildest corners of North America.” Along with producer Chelsea Davis and sound designer Nick Patri, REI has created a branded podcast that doesn’t feel like a branded podcast. It feels more like an old fashioned radio drama reimagined.
