When you are podcasting you are talking to your audience, but you also have to realize there is a bit of “performance” mixed in. This is why you had people like Wolfman Jack and other people who were super high energy. Then you had people like Paul Harvey who had his own style, and really really long pauses.
Some people get nervous thinking about this and get a little “sing songy” and end up accenting words in what some might feel are un-natural places. Today I play a clip of a newspaper that puts their content out on Amazon devices. What do you think? Is this TOO MUCH?
I always advise my clients to go up to obnoxious and back it down two notches. This is a few notches above your typical voice, but not so exaggerated it sounds weird. When you practice this, some people refer to this as finding your voice.
