The Number One Fear - Speaking in Public

That's right - it ranks even before death and is the thing that most people fear, even speaking before a small group.

Welcome to The Talk Show for Talkers

The Talk Show for Talkers is a Podcast covering everything to do with public speaking, confidence and leadership. It is published in four sections every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday as a podcast on Anchor, iTunes and other podcasting platforms as well as on this website.

The show is hosted by experienced Toastmasters, Ted Mellamphy, a past President of Blarney Toastmasters and the 2017/18 Division A Director of District 71 (UK & Ireland), Moira O'Brien DTM, President of Lee Valley Speakers (2017/18) and of Par Excellence Advanced Toastmasters Club, 2016/17 Director for Area 11 and 2017/18 Assistant Division A Director for PR, and Paul O'Mahony, 2017/18 VP for PR, and 2018/19 Sergeant at Arms with Blarney Toastmasters and Par Excellence TM.

First broadcast in November 2014, the Talk Show is now in its 5th season with over 200 shows (as of June 2019) and is listened to in more than 40 countries.



We are pleased to bring you Podcasts of all the shows for Seasons 4 to 6 (the current season) here on our website. Seasons 1 to 3 can also be found on the Irish Radio International Mixcloud account using the following links: Seasons1 & 2Season 3.

Since January 2019 we stopped publishing the full (radio broadcast) programme including music as was done for the previous four years. Instead, we publish the Anchor/iTunes podcasts which are individual segments published sequentially at 4pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday of each week.

Our podcasts are also available on these platforms:

Anchor Apple Podcasts/iTunes Google Podcasts
Spotify Breaker Castbox
Google Play Music Overcast Pocket Casts
PodBean RadioPublic

We are currently building an index to all the available shows but it will take some time to build this index.
