Wearing headphones while recording your podcast might seem counterintuitive, right? Wrong. It’s actually the only way to get an accurate, real-time review of your voice while recording. It might sound cringey, because the voice we hear is different from the voice those around us can hear; as discussed in a previous episode about hating the sound of your own voice. Headphones give you a truer version of how you sound, and the ability to make real-time adjustments to volume, popping Ps, and background noise.
