This seems so obvious I almost hesitated to bother with it, and yet there’s so many people out there doing podcasts and being inauthentic. Like myself, many of you grew up in the 1970’s with the crazy, zaney radio guy. You know the voice. It’s as fake as a three dollar bill. There’s just no room for it in our society today. And yet so many people try to emulate it and they succeed and thereby fail. Don’t be something you’re not and don’t be somebody you aren’t. Proudly admit your faults and your audience will bond with you. Of course keep it appropriate at all times and never admit to a felony, unless of course the statute of limitations has run. But you get the point.
