Story by Numbers Episode 2: Disney’s Chimpanzee and Nonprofit Storytelling

In this episode of the Story by Numbers podcast, Ruth and Maria go to the movies. We discuss the Disney documentary Chimpanzee and find lessons that you can use in your nonprofit communications. The main ideas we discussed are:

  • Joseph Cambell’s Hero’s Journey and how it relates to your nonprofit’s programs.
  • Creating an idea bank and populating it with photos, videos, notes and client testimonials. Tools range from paper and pen to online systems like Evernote.
  • Why Tim Allen should never narrate a documentary. Grunting? Really?

We’re really excited to announce that the podcast is now available in iTunes in the Nonprofit section. If you subscribe there, please write a review. We want your feedback and suggestions for improvement!
