Written, Spoken: A Podcast by Dave Ursillo

Written, Spoken is a podcast in which the written word comes to life as the spoken word through the voices of the writers who wrote them.

In Season 1 of Written, Spoken, you’ll hear 10 of Dave Ursillo’s most recently published personal narrative essays and human interest stories — stories that I recently shared with my online readers — as they leap off the page and into your earbuds for the very first time.

If you live your life at the intersection of self-knowledge and self-expression, this podcast is for you.

What Will I Hear on Written, Spoken?

Written, Spokenfeatures human interest stories and personal narrative essays — perspectives, experiences, advice, and stories that are true, honest, and reach across our differences and into the heart of what it means to be human.

Season 1 of Written, Spoken marks the 10-year anniversary of me leaving my first career path in public service behind with a 10-episode season.

As you’ll hear in the Season 1 Trailer below, here’s a preview of what’s in store…

  • Witness an intimate moment of transition in my personal life, and how I dealt with it
  • Step into the uncomfortable reality that is exploring a brand new creative endeavor for the first time
  • Hear the story of a secret language I learned on the streets of Paris, and what it reminded me about people everywhere
  • Question the stories that govern our perceptions of life, who we are, and what we’re capable of
  • Why the idea of political correctness is, to me, a myth that misleads us from understanding the constantly evolving nature of all human communication
  • A story behind a worldwide phenomenon that  is responsible for thwarting the creative self-expression of millions of writers the world over for the last 40 years

And here’s the Season 1 Trailer for your listening pleasure:
