  1. “Communication works for those who work at it.” John Powell
  2. Become someone worth listening to — with a podcast worth listening to — by giving depth and dimension to what you teach… by using your voice right.
  3. First (and always) the basics: 1) practice knowing how to use the cough button on mic and mute button on Zoom, etc.; and 2) be aware of “um”, “so, and “ah”.
  4. From there, add variety & dimension to your speaking voice (and to the experience of your listener) with pace, tone, and pitch.
  5. [TAKE ACTION] Schedule 13 minutes to review the show notes from this episode. Then think about how you will use pace, tone, and pitch in your show. Don’t forget the cough button!
