Visual Storytelling Podcast: When Storytelling Meets Geography

Posted on July 17, 2020

What do you get when you mix together storytelling and geography?

This was the question posed by Visual Storytelling Institute CEO, Shlomi Ron in his podcast Visual Storytelling Today.

In this 30-minute episode, Ron sat with Brian Alonso, co-founder of Built Story, to discuss the intriguing and exciting stories and histories surrounding the local neighborhoods we know and love, and the countless opportunities to bring these stories to light through visual storytelling.

Tune in as Brian shares the story behind his goal of making historical information accessible to everyone in a sustainable fashion, and how that goal inspired Built Story.

Merging the built environment with creative storytelling, Built Story offers an innovative platform that crowdsources the expertise and experiences from everyday users, tour creators, historians, artists, foodies, and more, to create unique experiences that encourage Tour Takers to explore their neighborhoods in fun and interactive ways and at their own pace.
