“Talking Toastmasters with Angela Nuss” Celebrates 3rd Anniversary and 40 Episodes

The Podcast “Talking Toastmasters” recently celebrated its third anniversary, and the successful completion of more than 40 episodes.

The Podcast is the creation of Angela Nuss, a Braintree resident and Director of Special Projects at Jay Nuss Realty Group, LLC in Braintree.

The podcast includes individual interviews with members of Toastmasters, their Toastmasters experiences, and how Toastmasters impacts their lives. Through the podcast, viewers and Toastmasters members alike will get to know each Toastmaster on a more personal level and have some fun along the way.  The podcast airs monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.

The first 40 episodes featured 240 different guests, including six new members, two alum, and represented 12 U.S. states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Ohio, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Washington. Segments also included members from the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. The podcasts were listened to more than 4,500 times as of the beginning of the year.

New in 2024 is that of a Calendar Year Sponsor.  While there have been different Sponsorship options since 2022, the Calendar Year Sponsor is akin to a season.  District 31 Toastmasters is the first Calendar Year Sponsor and only 2024 Calendar Year Sponsor.

Ms. Nuss said that she is especially proud to have interviewed six new members of Toastmasters over the past three years.  Each member walks the viewers through their experience from deciding to attend their first meeting, to their club visit, the process to join, and the experience of giving their first speech.

The podcast is the creation of Braintree resident Angela Nuss, a member of Toastmasters since February 2016.  She has held several leadership roles in Toastmasters in District 31, including Vice President of Public Relations in 2 Clubs, Secretary in one Club, Distinguished Area Director in 2018-2019, successful Club Coach in 2018-2019, and served as the District’s Club Retention Chair June 2020-May 2022 after serving as a member of the Membership Retention Committee since July 2019.   She earned her Distinguished Toastmaster Award in Spring 2020. She has completed the Motivational Strategies Path as well as the Pathways Mentorship program and is currently enrolled and actively working in the Visionary Communications and Leadership Development Paths in the Toastmasters Pathways Education Program.

Ms. Nuss launched the podcast to call more attention to the good work that Toastmasters does. She works with her cousin/godson William Tarashuk, founder and owner of podcast production company Willy T Productions.
