EP 004: How We Hear Our Own Voice and How to Just Finally Start a Podcast

OMG I sound horrible! Who would want to listen to me?

I always thought I sounded like a little boy going through puberty.

This is what a lot of us think about ourselves.

We criticize everything down to our own voices

I did it too.

I did a livestream in my group Passion to Pod today and I was telling the members that we hear ourselves differently than other people hear us and a member jumped in and offered her knowledge.

She said

It’s because when you speak you hear your own voice in two different ways. The first is through vibrating sound waves hitting your ear drum, the way other people hear your voice. The second way is through vibrations inside your skull set off by your vocal chords.

Makes sense!

And here is an article I found on Why We Hate the Sound of Our Own Voice

Anyways the reason for todays show is to FINALLY get you started recording!

Join the Challenge in the group on Facebook and get started already!


Play with recording on Anchor, on your computer (GarageBand,Audacity, or Adobe Audition)

Grab your apple earbuds, don’t need to complicate it.

Hit record and play!


Cmon now and listen
