If you have problems being lucid for several minutes at a time, and as a result think you sound like an idiot, my advice is to try doing your show in a foreign language. Preferably one you have no business speaking. Once you’re done, if you’re like me, you’ll feel like you can go hours without falling victim to vocal vapor lock.
That’s what I did. Staccato 26 is in French. It took a month before I could actually make myself complete it. I finished the show by giving out my email, confessing I’m an American, and asking my francophone listeners to be kind.
I think I’ll be able to do #27 in my sleep.
Which is great, since it’s the only time I have available to do it. Anybody want to do some SQL for me?
