Fletcher Dean is announcing a new podcast to give writers and speakers some of the tools they'll need to make their speeches and presentations great.
Speechwriting 2.0 will be available here and be available as a download from iTunes.
Why a podcast? As I explain in the podcast itself, what better way to talk about talking than through an audio format? Listeners can actually hear what I'm explaining and I'll be able to include audio clips from famous speeches as examples.
This first podcast has two major themes:
Explaining the genesis of Speechwriting 2.0
Exploring the elemental question of speechwriting: Whose Speech Is It?
Like it? Don't like it? Have suggestions on ways to make it better and more relevant? Talk to me and let me hear it. My hope is that this podcast -- along with this site -- will help foster a greater sense of cohesiveness among those of us who write speeches. Maybe that's too tall an order. Maybe it will just be a place where writers get some good tips and ideas. Either way, I hope you enjoy.
