I don’t know about you, but I feel that there’s something about real stories, especially those captured raw that makes me lose myself in the moment.
It makes me very sentimental.
Just like this segment from Home of the Brave where the host, Scott Carrier, teaches his five-year-old boy a skiing lesson, and at the same time imparting a valuable life lesson.
Feel like listening to something inspiring or soul-stirring on a nature drive?
Leave it to Scott Carrier to “carry” you on a heart-warming journey.
This particular episode starts with an introduction where Scott talks about the weather in Salt Lake City, where he lives, and then replays a recording taken way back in the winter of 1992.
It was a real conversation between father and son and is so precious in many ways. It starts with his son innocently asking him about skiing straight down.
He could have answered him with a direct yes or no. But I love how Scott engaged his boy with a story instead. It worked so well.
So he tells him about a guy refusing to make turns while skiing who ended up boring a hole and getting buried deep into the snow until nobody could find him.
Then Scott goes on to tell his kid about turns representing control and associating gravity with love. It was such a beautiful conversation.
The Peabody award winner has a way that touches a chord through his original storytelling. His soft and charming wobbly voice adds a hue of emotion to his narratives that captivates the soul.
