  1. Hi Clara, I do empathise with the competition element and have just talked about it on my next long awaited release of cb44 where I break it down in terms of power being a natural common ground in terms of human social structure. It is difficult to deal with in other aspects of life too, however I think that it’s part of the aim of the onsug where we try to strive beyond those “day world” rules and leave the pure doctrine of personality shine through, which is probably why nobody has given you advice because we can’t tell you how to be you because it’s you that’s the entertaining part. Things that I might try in the future and have tried in the past is breaking down the show to 5 minute segments, and throwing in some different sounds whether that be locations or music or even different microphones just to give a variety feel like more of a journey. But this may not work for you. I also have the monotone voice problem but I do my best to act over it so I am able to over look it when I’m listening to your show but I do have to actively imagine your emotions rather then them being plain to the listener as with your good husband Rubén for example who is hilarious…. I don’t know if you drink but might be worth recording after a glass of wine or two on a sat night when your in chill mode. It may be a good idea to bring up the high end of your EQ and take down the bass, also another trick I use sometimes is to keep the pitch the same but increase the speed about 10%. It keeps a flow and makes you sound really intelligent and fast talking. I also steer away from post production editing for the most part by uploading the recording straight from my phone to Dropbox which saves like 70% of the work. I also think you would be a good interviewer! Like singers dancers, comic con stuff and I like some background on Manga. It is a funny hobby/skill… Have fun exploring you have the right man beside you.

  2. Hi there, Eddie. Thanks for listening and commenting! I think I’ll address your comment more in a recording (!) but will just say I actually don’t do any post-production either, should I be pitching my voice higher? Thanks for the feedback – means a lot.
