Update: I used Odeo to host this podcast, and it’s stopped hosting for free! Death of podcasts it seems..
I did a lightning talk on Public Speaking for Geeks at foss.in yesterday. I had great fun delivering the talk and listening to all the others. It’s a wonderful game!
What could I do after that? Well, convert the lightning talk into a podcast!
So here’s my first podcast – Public Speaking for Geeks! In this four and half minute podcast, I talk about public speaking. Compare it to free software and share secrets of succeeding at public speaking – or in my terms sharing your ideas and sharing your knowledge!
- Download .mp3 (4.1MB)
- Download .m4a (2.1MB)
And this one is dedicated to Atul Chitnis. For being the unstoppable army behind foss.in and inspiring me!
And here are some relevant past posts:
- Must reads for making better presentations
- Observations and tips for elocution
- Learning presentations from Bill Gates and Steve Jobs
- Podcasts at Web Essentials 2005 conference
- Two years ago, I tried to do my first podcast. And it did not work out!
Feedback, comments.. most welcome!
If you on the foss.in network right now, you won’t be able to listen to / download the mp3 file! Try the m4a instead! That should work!
This was a very inspiring podcast. Nirav, can you please let me know how to make your own podcast? What software is required and hardware for recording? The music in the background is also interesting. How can one do that? Thanks for this very nice blog.
I used Apple’s GarageBand software to make this podcast. The background music too is some music loops that come with GarageBand.
You can use any decent audio editing application for making a podcast – including Audacity!
Go ahead and try it out! Let me know once your first podcast is out!
I like the podcast, I am going to copy it!

Thanx for the great podcast..
I m sure this will help me..
Last part where u say ‘nothing bad can ever happen …’ was particular well crafted.
One thing I notices that ur voice lacked level enthusiasm that a podcast needs. U need open ur voice. I am sorry i can’t explain more that this.
Khull ke bolo!
The podcast was very good
It made me rejuvenate my traning days

This is a brilliant little podcast, a friend of mine is having difficulties getting ready for a speech he has to make so I’ll forward him this link in hope that it might inspire him a little!
Thank you for sharing it with us.
