About Alex’s Speeches

I enjoy speaking before a variety of audiences on a variety of topics. Whenever possible, I like to record my speeches and make them available on-line, here.

Each of the speeches include the full recording of the speech and also the slides. Most offer the option of listening to the audio only or viewing a video of the speech with the slides.

The audio should play smoothly on any computer, even over a slow Internet connection, like a dial-up line. The video versions require 100 kbps or greater to play smoothly — any type of connection that is better than a dial-up line should work fine.

You can also download the files to play back later. If you have a slow connection and the audio or video starts and stops, use the download option.

Podcasting Options

If you own a portable music and video player, subscribe to any of the podcast feeds. They will provide new speeches as they are published in a variety of formats:

If you do not know how to subscribe to a podcast, read the documentation that came with your music player or music software — it is easy to subscribe with any music device. If your documentation does not explain how to subscribe, just do a web search on the words “subscribe podcast” and the name of your music player.
