Listen now (12 mins) | (It wasn't a human. Relax.)
As one who has affection for you and roots for your success - and one who makes my living in all manner of spoken word, I urge you to find your actual voice and use it. Gently I say - don’t try accents.
There's a loud musical splat at 1:00 or so but it's funny so I think you should keep it in. The musical choice in general is funny. It's like you're selling plastic toys or something.
Congratulations, I made it to “I got me a sister...” before the accent forced me to pause the audio and upgrade my subscription to paid. Not sure why it took me so long, but I’m happy to be here
occasionally I wonder if Emily has given you the Alfie Allen treatment.
This is why I subscribe. How do you not have a book deal?
Is it just me or is there music in the background at one point so loud you cannot hear anything else?
Hey, Ben, check out Alitu for recording, editing, adding music, etc. it’s super-easy.
1) This sounds like something an old, bearded man smelling of piss would mutter to himself in a subway car.
2) Every woman in your life sounds like a mix of Cartman and Brian's mum in "Life of Brian".
3) I absolutely loved it. This is exactly the unhinged, bizarre stuff I subscribed for.
If you do more audio add a transcript
This is pretty great.
This was hilarious! I listened on your podcast and there were a couple of weird sound bits I think, but I laughed the whole way through! I like when you do audio - whether the podcast or something like this. I like being able to listen in the car rather than needing to find time to sit and read.
I voted that you should experiment more with audio before I listened, I would like to change my vote.
