From the Charisma on Comman YouTube channel, here is Kevin Hart's 3 Secrets to Hilarious Storytelling - YouTube link.Kevin Hart is one of the funniest men alive.  Whether in interviews with Ellen Degeneres or George Lopez, or his standup specials, he tells absolutely hilarious stories.  In fact, most of his standup routine consists of him telling stories.  But he does it in such a way that hooks an audience and never lets go, partially because he is able to include so many jokes.  It's not that Kevin Hart's life is inherently more interesting than the rest of ours.  He is just a better storyteller.  The good news is that storytelling is not something you're born with or you're not.  Anyone can learn to tell the kind of funny stories that made Kevin famous.  You just need to know the most important pieces.  While there are many storytelling techniques and styles that will enable you to captivate an audience, ultimately, the best storytellers share a few things in common: they get attention, they commit, and they are constantly refining their craft.  These fundamentals can be used in any kind of story but they are especially useful for funny stories.  So if you want to know how to tell a story better or you are just are interested in what makes Kevin Hart's stories so engaging, check out the video.____________________________________________This is part 2 from Programme 37 of 2018/19 season - first broadcast on August 24th, presented by Moira O'Brien & Paul O’Mahony.The show is in four parts and usually has this format:(1) Introducing a “Thought for the Week” and a “Word of the Week” together with general conversation arising out of these two topics.

From YouTube this is a speech by actor Wentworth Miller which is entitled "The Speech that will make you Cry". Don't let the title put you off - this is a really good speech with some very good techniques. We recommend not to watch the YouTube version as the music and visuals are very distracting - concentrate on the message and the rhetorical devices used. ____________________________________________This is part 2 from Programme 32 of 2018/19 season - first broadcast on July 6th, presented by Moira O'Brien, Paul O’Mahony & Ted Mellamphy.The show is in four parts and usually has this format:(1) Introducing a “Thought for the Week” and a “Word of the Week” together with general conversation arising out of these two topics.
