What it sounds like

"Kohn" is an award-winning radio story produced by Andy Mills (a graduate of the Salt Institute) that was honored in the 2011 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story, which features the musicians of Hudson Branch/Dogs on Tour, tells what happens when someone hears his own voice for the first time and finds that it's not what he expected. (And a Radiolab short based on the story explains why what we hear in our heads isn't always what the world hears from our mouths.) In a similar vein, another Third Coast winner, Seizure's Lament, tells the story of a radio producer who wanted to know what her seizures look like to other people.

Had a lot of difficulties getting "Kohn" on my podcasts. Ending up just listening to "Slow" from Radiolab. It's an interesting problem, but I ended up wondering what he would sound like if they could speed up his voice a trifle. Perhaps that would sound like what he sounds like in his head.
