Week 11: Vocal Color

Today we talked about voicing and "public radio voice." We watched Talking While Female from NPR and had a discussion about which voices are respected in our society. We also reviewed voicing techniques for next week (enunciate, speak slowly, think about pauses and emphasis). We also listened to Sound as Touch from RadioLab just for fun, and we had a long discussion about last week's listening homework, Yik Yak Returns from Reply All. 

For homework they will continue the voicing discussion by reading Vocal Color in Public Radio by Chenjerai Kumanyika and Can a Woman’s Voice Ever Be Right? by Jordan Kisner.

They'll also listen to From the Cell to the Sell from StartUp (which has nothing to do with voicing, it's just a good episode).
