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 Radio Show & Podcast covering everything to do with public speaking, confidence and leadership. It is published every Friday as a podcast on this website and soon thereafter on iTunes and other podcasting platforms.

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, President of Lee Valley Speakers (2017/18) and of Par Excellence Advanced Toastmasters Club, 2016/17 Director for Area 11 and now Assistant Division A Director for PR, and Paul O'Mahony, VP for PR with Blarney Toastmasters and Par Excellence TM.

First broadcast in 2014, the Talk Show is now in its 4th season with over 150 shows (as of May 2018) and is listened to in more than 30 countries.


We are pleased to be able to bring you Podcasts of all the shows for the Seasons 4 and 5 the current season. Our full archive can also be found on the Irish Radio International Mixcloud account using the following links: Seasons1 & 2Season 3.

Shows are published here each week on Fridays around 4pm. The four individual segments of the show (without music) are also published on Anchor and iTunes under the name "Irish Talkers", as well as other podcasting sites. These are generally published on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday around 4pm. We will shortly be able to present an index to all the available shows but it will take some time to build this index.
