This episode begins with my guest Barbara Kite taking me through a quick centering exercise (you can join us). Then this veteran acting coach generously shares some trade secrets from the world of acting that can help speakers, singers and even songwriters. It’s a fascinating subject I’ve long been interested in, and I think you’ll gain some insight that will help you in your next performance.

Need your help:

I could really use some new ratings (5 stars would help raise the rating of the podcast, especially on iTunes).  
  • Go to 
  • Choose your app (iTunes if you have it installed on phone, Windows PC or Mac computer)
  • Leave your rating and review.
A big hug to any of you that take a moment to do this. I have 40 five-star ratings but 6 gave three & four stars which are pulling the overall rating down. Thank you for your help!
