  • AOC and the Anxieties of Public Speaking

    When a relatively young community activist won a primary election against a long-serving congressman in New York City in 2016, the national news media took notice. Ever since then, the legislator known as AOC has been making headlines, partly for her confrontational style, and partly for her ability to excite crowds.

  • A Dedicated All-Star and a Great Presenter

    Many elementary school students are called upon to imagine their future occupation. Some want to be doctors, others firefighters, and some even hope to become professional athletes. The subject of this piece, Jason Benetti, shared that he wanted to become announcer of the Chicago White Sox. And here he is, not only leading the coverage on White Sox telecasts, but as a spokesperson for a national cause and subject of a national TV news story. He’s a great presenter, too.
