GRIT: True Stories That Matter

GRIT is a weekly podcast about stories (the contemporary, personal narrative kind) and the people that craft and tell them. Each week, a storyteller will tell one of their stories and then break it down with GRIT founder, Sean Wellington.


Why you ask? Well, we want to feature these tellers and their GRIT stories. Also, to help you - our listeners - craft and tell better, more engaging, more relatable and more memorable stories (that matter!)


New episodes are released on Fridays (please subscribe!)
