If there is one podcast that illustrates extremely the power of storytelling is Radiolab. Apart from the fabulous topics they pick, what they excel best is at their extraordinary production. People that think that the radio is dead they should definitely check them out as an example of brilliant 21st century storytelling.
The previous episode is worth noting not only as an example of great storytelling in audio format, but because the topic is extremely relevant for most technologists. The story describes the works of the Facebook Trust group and how they engineers emotions through interface changes.
It’s very relevant because too many engineers disregard the human element from their designs, which makes for poor stories and poor communication. Enjoy!
