A podcast on public speaking

There is this short and sweet podcast from Nirav which would should be a must listen for first time speakers, non geeks and geeks. He manages to capture in a bit over 180 seconds things on which reams of paper have been consumed – a speech is about the speaker telling his/her story to an audience who have already shown an interest in listening to it. Nothing can go bad in a session of story telling if the story is compelling and the speaker is having fun. Reminds me of a trick I overheard someone_I_know passing on to a nervous and over-prepared speaker – “Imagine there’s a whole sea of naked folks sitting in front of you – there’s nothing more funny than that. Go ahead – kick some serious butt”
