Grappling With Tone

Tone has been something on my mind a lot over the past semester. As someone who frequently tends toward academic writing, I had never given it much thought. This became increasingly complicated as I made my podcast. I want to be direct with my listeners and to present formal information without it feeling stiff. In the interview with my guest, the discourse was causal and comfortable. I was unsure how I should parallel these two things. I tried to make my periods of narration short, informative, and light. Additionally, I tried to focus on the meshing of the narration and the interview. I paid a lot of attention to transition. This way, I can have tones that are a bit different but have them contribute to the larger feel of my podcast.
