For reasons I still don’t understand, the video software I was using captured decent audio in recording mode even though the Facebook Live wasn’t working for us. However, there were audio problems with the speech by Dr. Brooks — I’m sharing it here, but it’s not something we should promote because of the crackle you’ll hear if you watch it. I think the little microphone I’ve been using with my old smartphone is damaged or something. (Thanks to Alex and Tyler for volunteering their talents as audio engineers for next time we try something like this).
Video of Bruce’s humorous moment and a couple of the Table Topics are posted to our Facebook Page. Please “Like” the page if you have not already done so and consider sharing the videos.

Video policy: speech videos are intended as a tool for speakers to see their own performances and think about how they can improve. Even though these are on YouTube, they are published as “unlisted” by default, meaning they won’t show up in search results. Don’t forward these links or post them on Facebook or in any other forum without the speaker’s permission. From time to time, we may ask a speaker for permission to use a video as part of our marketing of the club. Volunteers are also welcome – if you’re proud of a particular speech, let us know.
