Person of Interest with Jeff Thomas: Cincy Stories founders Shawn Braley and Chris Ashwell

Shawn Braley and Chris Ashwell are the co-founders of Cincy Stories – a social initiative designed to connect communities through storytelling. Let’s face it – Cincinnati’s neighborhoods are more than just the news-blurbs you occasionally hear about. Our communities are a rich fabric of people, families, history, ethnic diversity, and fascinating stories. When we share our stories with others, we create empathy. When we create empathy, we’re collectively more willing to listen to each other – which is especially important, in this era where we seem to be more tribal than ever. Listen to how Shawn and Chris are connecting communities through storytelling!
