Feedback on a library research instruction session I just gave: "your voice should be on a radio show! Loved the enthusiasm when explaining"

Okay, I'll take it. One part genetics, one part learned skill.

I always feel weird about comments on my voice, though. It's a privilege thing: I'm uneasy about authority or expertise that might be assumed because I have a deep male voice.

So I'll lean into the enthusiasm: that's under my control. And find other aspects of my teaching that I can improve as well.

@dbs You're allowed to take the whole complement! Radio hosts don't just get born with a nice voice, it takes thousands of hours of practice to deliver evenly, to modulate rate and volume. Plenty of people are terrible presenters purely due to lack of this skill which takes practice to acquire.
