I Recommend This Podcast!

I found myself doing a lot of public speaking over the past year. This podcast has helped me improve my skills. The episodes are short and sweet. I can listen during “found time,” which I love. Jim gives specific tips that you can immediately apply to your own speech. Bonus: Jim has a wonderful speaking voice. He clearly practices what he is preaching. I recommend!
