Interview with Gary Arndt (part 2) The Extemper's Bible

On this episode of the Extemper’s Bible, I interview Gary Arndt, a nationally-acclaimed former extemp coach. While coaching several state champions and national finalists is certainly an accomplishment in itself, it’s Gary’s other exploits that make him a truly interesting interviewee. From traveling to over 130 countries to running his own successful podcast (Everything Everywhere), Gary is an incredibly knowledgable source of information. This is an episode you won’t want to miss! Sorry for the big gap between episodes, I have some exciting developments lined up for the podcast that I hope to share soon (including getting more hosts and posting more frequently)! In the meantime, check out our website extempers.org! Gary can be reached out to on Discord: https://discord.gg/UkRUJFh
