9.45 Book Review:

28.33 Closing Remarks:


  • You’re not the only one who uses acting techniques to change their voice…. Lexi says I should let you hear my native accent sometime (only because it amsuses her when it breaks through when I’m tired or having been visiting home)!

    Though we would have lost any bet on actually guessing what yours had been, it does account for the nice soft vowels you use sometimes…. Mmm… Vocal geekery.

      I didn’t think you sounded like you were from … Nottingham? but didn’t want to say anything. Walter is from Hereford, but he doesn’t have a typical accent, either, and when he puts it on (and sings about combine harvesters) it cracks me up.
