This chapter is the first of two focused on professional tips for how Professor Pundits can effectively make media contributions, especially on screen (i.e., television, web videos, video versions of podcasts, etc.). The chapter provides practical tips about physicality, vocalization, and eye contact, as well as “inner dialogue” ideas on how to bring one’s authentic qualities to bear in relating complex material to general audiences. Beyond media contributions, the tips in this chapter are useful for any kind of public-facing communication at any stage of professional experience.
