Tell Us Something allows a sharing transaction between storytellers and listeners.
The act of sharing stories goes beyond performance, beyond telling. Tell Us Something storytellers do not memorize their stories and most of them do not write their stories. Because of this, they are not only sharing their story with the listeners, they are sharing themselves.
"...when you share a story in a way that invites your listener to conjure their own experiences, you respect and empower listeners. When you share a story, it connects with your listeners’ existing knowledge and invites them toward their own understanding of the experience you are sharing."
