Low quality phone interview, only for professional speakers

This 'audiobook' is a meandering conversation that was conducted on the phone for a podcast. The speaking quality is poor. Only a small portion of the 'book' covers how to use props but only in the context of professional speakers. I was hoping for guidance that I could use in Toastmasters speeches and found very little useful information. A significant part of the conversation revolves around selling props to corporate clients so the audience members can keep them as a reminder of the speech. Usually, interviews of this quality are available for free from the websites of professional speakers (e.g. Judy Carter).
