From time to time I record myself reading some of my newsletters to make podcast episodes.
When I was a kid, I had the chance to immerse myself in the stories of several oral storytellers in my family. I was very marked by the depth of the expression in their voices. Such a simple process, without images, and my imagination was already traveling far away. Much Later, while I was doing a Vipassana meditation retreat, I felt that the voice, speaking or chanting, can really carry warmth and love. Such a simple process, and I can feel reassured and taken care of.
In this podcast, I get inspiration from these memories. I try to read these letters using all that my voice can transmit. To convey emotions, images, philosophy, and, of course, warmth and love.
But, I tend to be a perfectionist. When I am trying to record, I am often blocked by background noise, some diction mistakes, or a lack of love in the voice! If I try to make ‘good’ recordings, I may never succeed to publish.
So, I decided to set to myself one rule: I do a ‘one-shot’ recording, including my hesitations and mistakes.
Then, instead of making perfect recordings, they are raw, as if you were with me!
What my listeners think about my podcast episodes…
“Bravo! What a job!!! The result is fantastic!!! 😃🤩🤩🤩 I just listened to your science and philosophy tale podcast. It’s super well written for listening! I’m impressed, the result is amazing. It’s much better than a lot of stuff done on France Culture Radio (I say that from experience after listening to miles and miles of it).”
“Very nice narration! Very nice voice! :-))”
