Dani Stover (BlogTO’s Only in Toronto) and Michael Mongiardi (That’s How I Remember It) are both podcasters AND improvisors. They both have successful podcasts, and have found the skills they’ve learned in improv training to have been invaluable to hosting a podcast. They want to share their experience and show how improvisation fundamentals can help improve podcast dialogue, and keep things interesting. Their session is focused on dialogue and how to efficiently and effectively bounce conversation off your guests and co-hosts! These skills apply to conversations in any podcast, comedy or otherwise, and frankly can be used in any every-day conversation too.
