Faithful readers may recall that I'm a big fan of radio, and specifically a big fan of NPR. Of the myriad voices on NPR, I find two especially attractive: Jad Abumrad of RadioLab and Michele Norris on All Things Considered.
I wish I had a nice, sexy and (but?) authoritative voice. I think I sound kind of nasal, I tend to mumble, and when I speak French my voice goes up a register. :/
Sometimes when I'm in the car for a long period of time I'll listen to public radio. And during the afternoons here they'll re-broadcast NPR's 'All Things Considered'.
It's the most I ever learn about America, but I can't say I've ever even really thought about the sound of the voices.
