Every weekday afternoon, Sean Rameswaram tells America about the day’s biggest news on Vox’s podcast Today, Explained. But his podcast isn’t some stodgy Dan Rather shit. Over the years, Sean has mastered the elusive art of sounding human on air.
In this talk, Sean dives into the nitty-gritty details of how he — and many other familiar voices — bring scripts to life. He’ll reveal his writing process, address the age-old “standing vs. sitting” debate, and explain how he developed a distinct voice on Today, Explained. You’ll also hear recordings from Sean’s conversations with folks like Anna Sale, Stephanie Foo, and Sam Sanders with advice on finding your own style.
