Really, really, really, really loved this interview! Really! Jaime is fantastic, his online content is terrific & so helpful. I watch all of his videos, so it was a treat to hear the interview. I especially liked the discussion you had with him about “you always sound like you” despite whatever gear we may buy. And the part about our oral cavity — I can’t see someone else’s and they cannot see mine and whatever goes on in there is what makes our individual sound. Unique to us. I hope someday you can do a part 2 with him!
“You always sound like you” is an important concept for everyone to understand and accept and push forward in their own journey.
Thanks again for being a superfan 🙂
Terrific podcast Donna, enjoyed it
