Unstrictly Speaking

This is my li'l podcast where I'll be sharing self-publishing tips, sharing stories from my life, philosophizing ideas to chew on and...I dunno...identify with? Subjects tackled may sometimes, often, or never include: the world today (Because what is UP?) how to find happiness (And I dunno, keep it?) How do I do this? (This whole THIS!) Getting over trauma (Because seriously.) Manifesting stuff (Always a fun subject we all care about.) Letting go of the past (Thank God that’s over) Living in the Now (Wait, now? No, now. Now? Yes, Now…I think?) Welcome to byte-sized ponderings about anything, everything, and maybe even nothing. ✨💛✨

In this joyous episode (heheh) WHILE having not great sound quality, I go over VO Tips…aka Voice Over. Because I was kinda working through this next phase of VIDEO podcasting where this episode is viewable in all its goofiness AND closed captioning is there for the hearing impaired or the distracted while working who listen with their sound off.

I will give more in depth tips too! With better audio. I swear I know how to do this.
