This interview is a double trouble (in every sense!) as we welcome Jesse and Tucker to the virtual podcast couch.
You’ll learn how to tell stories as Tucker shares why you should work on refining your stage persona. Jesse brings his comedic background in the mix as we discuss why humour can be taught. After that, we dive into frameworks to tell better stories and powerful ways to combine expectation and surprise.
We discuss some of our favourite one liners, how to present better and be your true self, and some ideas on what you should get tattooed on your biceps.
