Molly Bishop Shadel and Robert Saylor, authors of Tongue-Tied America spoke Thursday on the topic of effective public speaking.

In this podcast you will hear, Shadel and Saylor give several examples of poor public speaking taken from recent Republican primary stump speeches. They then follow with examples of many great speeches including the one in which Lou Gehrig moved a nation with his speech about the disease that now bears his name. You will learn why “It’s a bird, it’s a plane it’s Superman!” is so memorable. Learn how presidential candidate Al Gore transformed himself from a poor to an excellent speaker. And, you’ll hear Robert Kennedy speak on the night Marten Luther King was assassinated.

This podcast is a must-listen for anyone who speaks in public. Following the presentation questions were taken from the audience. The program was introduced by Josh Wheeler, director of The Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression.
