155 - Steve Vrooman Interviews Tucker


Hello and welcome to The Spark & The Art creativity podcast. Thank you for subscribing to our weekly podcast, where we alternate between interviews with creative folks from all different career levels and insight and inspiration episodes. All with the intention you’ll get what you need to get your creative projects started and, more importantly, finished.

I’m your host Tucker and this week is an interview with me for another podcast called Every Speaker Has A Story. It’s a podcast made, and hosted, by Dr. Steven Vrooman. Steve is a professor Texas Lutheran University where is chair of the Department of English and Communication Studies and director of General Education. He’s also done a TEDx talk and published the Zombie Guide to Public Speaking. He’s a smart guy. 

This is an older interview done back in December of 2016 (so about 9 months ago). In this talk, we talk about traditional public speaking because I had recently done my talk on the Cores of Creativity for the Graphic Designers of Canada. But we also talk about how public speaking in the more day to day sense where just doing creative presentations at my design job back when I worked at the large communications company.

We also talk about how podcasts are made and some things we’ve learned about interviewing. 

So here is my interview with Steve Vrooman. 

Well, that’s it the penultimate episode of the regular series. Next week is the wrap-up episode then it’s the Camp Conference mini-series about a month after that. 

Thanks for listening and remember: you won’t get the art without the work and you won’t do the work without the spark.
