I hope he takes you up on the offer of coming back on. I had more than a few giggles, especially as both of you have an amusing way of phrasing and framing some of those stories.

I love how much of a character he was. I felt like it gave me licence to really go for it myself and use maybe slightly more colourful and evocative language than I might've in a dead serious let's-talk-legislation sort of interview.

Really hope he gets me back, it was a blast.

I hadn't expected your Kiwi accent to still be as strong as it is, given how long you've lived in Australia. Your little bit on the project last year wasn't quite enough to give me a good idea of your accent.

The enthusiasm in the conversation is contagious. It's genuinely appealing to listen to. Great job!

Exactly what I thought - a follow up would be brilliant.

Hah I have absolutely no idea what my accent sounds like any more, because sometimes I get comments like this, and sometimes I get asked "you're a Kiwi, really? Never would've guessed, you don't sound like one at all!"

I definitely sound more Australian the more I have to drink, and I think my Kiwi accent comes through more strongly when I speak in formal contexts. But tonight I was more relaxed than the average formal presentation.

I'm getting into the world of having to listen to my own voice for research purposes. I had been pleasantly surprised, though.

I still bloody hate listening to my own voice even after getting somewhat used to it while writing content last year based on interviews that I did.

Having to listen to my own voice was the main minus in deciding to do audio interviews for my research. I think I will get used to it, I think it helps that my voice is quite clear.

I spent the better part of two years editing my own voice in uni when I was a radio major.

Then I had to hear it when we reviewed phone calls I took at ANZ. That fun went on for four years until I got promoted.

So approximately six years of regularly hearing my own voice. Still fucking hate it.

i'm gonna have to give the interview a listen in a sec.

i absolutely hate hearing my voice as well. this past semester i had to keep listening to it because we had to upload a presentation of our final projects (and it wasn't even for a grade, talk about pointless) and the process was so poorly explained that i had huge issues with it so i had to keep hearing me talking like a six-year-old. even worse is now my boyfriend's talking about wanting to sample me singing a line from a skit that cracks us up to put in a song he wants to do. i can't sing...just because i was in chorus in middle school and for a year in high school doesn't mean shit. i was always in the background, i never once had a solo!
