In this episode, I talk with Brian Tarallo — author, graphic recorder, and meeting facilitator — about his new book, Surviving the Horror of Online Meetings.

Hear how Brian came up with the book concept while he was stuck in a traffic jam heading for a graphic recording session and how his years of learning how to make online meetings less scary will help you raise your game in your own online meetings.
