The sound of your own voice is always jarring, isn’t it? Even without worrying about the science behind it, the fact of the matter is you never sound the way you think you do.
This goes for everybody. Thanks to countless hours of creating and editing my own podcasts, I’ve gotten over the shock (and disgust) at how I sound. Every once in awhile I’ll listen to an old clip and shake my head. The more I do, I think I’ve been able to balance out the sound to be more authentic with how I talk on a day to day basis.
It’s one thing to do it when you’re the host, but being a guest always throws me off my game. Or at least, it used to. When Ian Ryan of Golden Habits reached out to me, I took this as an opportunity to see how far I’ve come in presenting my ideas and thoughts on communication.
