Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:
Friday’s e-links 8/20
On the Media’s “How Radio Makes Female Voices Sound Shrill” is one of the best podcasts I’ve heard recently. Starting with the first telephone operators, the narrative explains that sound technology creates shrill female voices. It looks at how Margaret Thatcher deepened her voice. And, it commented on the connection between a voice and perceptions of competency. I always know a podcast is good when I have to stop in the middle and then I return. I went back to finish “How Radio Makes Female Voices Sound Shrill.” So yes, though not explicit, of course there is an economic connection.
