    #53. Expert presentation advice - LIVE from Palm Springs

    #53. Expert presentation advice - LIVE from Palm Springs

    Ever wonder if there’s ONE thing you need to be doing to improve your presentations? The Rancheros have answers.

    When GhostRanch retreated to Palm Springs for a “Winter Workation” last week, we did hot-seat style interviews!

    From art director to designer to technical director, we got advice that people (like you!) can easily implement to level-up their presentations. And for good measure, we asked a bunch of silly random stuff too.

    Similar to our “What GhostRanch Learned at StoryCamp” (#32) episode, this is an episode for: Presentation designers, aspiring or current speakers and friends of the Ranch.

    #52. TED Talkin': How Tony Fadell replaces habituation with innovation

    Starting his career at Apple with Steve Jobs and designing the early iPod, Fadell later went on to invent the Google Nest smart thermostat.

    His TED Talk, The First Secret of Great Design, illustrates how breaking habituation is the first step in observing everyday problems around us that innovators can solve. What aren’t you noticing? And how can its design serve us better?

    Mikey and Molly analyze this TED Talk and what we can learn from its content, Tony’s execution and, of course, the slides.

    This is an episode for: TED Talk enthusiasts, engineers, product designers and tech nerds.

    #49. Looking back on 2022 - The making of Presentation Thinking

    What we learned starting a presentation podcast and where (we hope) it’s going.

    This episode’s “Year in Review” peels back the curtain so we can tell you EXACTLY how many regular listeners we have, which episodes came out on top and how many nicknames Mikey has gifted the ‘cast.

    It’s been a journey—From figuring out what the heck to talk about, to getting folks to interview, to avoiding over-enunciating into our microphones. 

    And we can’t wait to keep growing our listening community (#PresentationNation!) into the New Year.

    This is an episode for: podcasters, creators & people that love Spotify Wrapped
