It's like New Years around here as we prepare to kick off Season 2 events next Monday in Seattle, which means we've been feeling all nostalgic about the sights and sounds from the first season. And as our great grandmas taught us, there's no better way to stoke nostalgia than to flip through some old photos.
At Boldly Went events, we ask that participants share their stories without audio/video accompaniment, because the world doesn't need more Powerpoint slides, we like the creative challenge, and it assures that stories will be just as powerful on our podcast as they are in person. But after each event we invite storytellers to send us their photos and back stories because we just can't resist. We didn't want to be greedy, so mid-season we started compiling some of the cool stuff people were sending, and putting it out weekly in our Newsletter and Field Notes page.
As we were flipping back through some of those, it was striking how many amazing storytellers we had, and how many awesome photos they sent us. So, ahead of next week's event, we compiled some of our favorite photo/storyteller combos, along with links to the episodes on which they were featured.
Note: episode links in this blog are to iTunes where we hope you will subscribe to future episodes, and if you like the podcast leave us a review! If you're not an iTunes listener, you can also find episodes in your favorite podcasting app by searching "Boldly Went" or stream directly from the Listen page on our website.
Our favorite photos from live events were taken by Monika Deviat, in Calgary, Canada. She specializes in night sky photography and her website is worth checking out!
Get Involved, and become part of the nostalgia for Season 2!
