Comments from the 2021 First Friday Ethics (August 2021) STUDIO WEBCAST

Claude Ducloux (sp.?) is always wonderful

informative

How many times did the speakers use "um" and "uh" in their speeches -- especially Browning ? It's highly distracting and annoying. Cannot believe these folks are "trial" lawyers. Content was important but the grammatical presentation severely diluted it.

For the most part, the quality of both the audio and video were quite good. However, one of the speakers on the third and final hour of this program sounded like she was down in a well, and that distracted from her presentation. But all presenters were knowledgeable, prepared and organized and seemed to get to all of their talking points in the time allotted. I've looked at the slides but haven't yet reviewed any of the other written materials, if there were any.

Any way to shorten the time before the replay is available?
