    David Nihill: Do You Talk Funny?: 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (and Funnier) Public Speaker
    On this week’s episode, David teaches us how to practically engage with humor.
    Humor isn’t a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have.
    —David Nihill

    If there’s embarrassment in there, there’s humor in there. It’s just about whether you’re willing to talk about it.
    —David Nihill

    The end of laughter is followed by the height of listening.
    —Jeffrey Gitomer
