“Podcasting is just a new context. Even if it might be a little bit of a scary context. We might not know how microphones work. We might be worried about how our sentences sound or do we have to sound like the people on NPR? We're here to tell you, we actually need you to sound like yourself.” – Casey Erin Clark
