The Great Q&A Episode (AKA: THE COVIDCABANA!!!)

39 minutes

On this episode of The Freenoter, Tamsen and Tom delve into that bane of all freenotes, Question and Answer time! How can speakers and freenoters turn the Q&A section of their talk into a secret weapon? Also, we debut a new segment: the COVIDCABANA!!!...in which we adapt the lessons from each episode especially for webinars and virtual presentations, since we won't be seeing live stages for a while! We also visit the work of Real Hero of Speaking Michael Port, and enjoy a lovely Irish cocktail: the Tipperary.

The Tipperary:

1 1/2 oz good Irish Whiskey (we used Powers Johns Lane 12 Year)
1 oz. Antica Carpano
1/2 oz. Green Chartreuse
2 dashes each of Angostura and Orange bitters.

Stir over ice and let sit a bit while you peel the rind from an orange and squeeze it to express the oil from the rind over the glass. Strain cocktail into glass and float down the Liffey.
