StoryShout: Destigmatizing Failure

StoryShout: Destigmatizing Failure

StoryShout is a weekly podcast, hosted by Kelsey Jones, that focuses destigmatizing being terrible at something. Each week, we talk with a guest and ask them "What do you suck at?" Answers have ranged from humorous, like interior design, to more serious career topics, like delegation. Whereas some podcasts want to make you better, we want to humanize failure by discussing the "why" but not the "how can I fix it?"
