What makes a voice?

About this episode

Have you ever listened to a podcast, and been able to tell that someone is smiling without even seeing them? It's fascinating how much our voices can reveal! So, what are the physical qualities that shape our voices, and what does that say about ourselves? In this episode, JJ Aucouturier is here to explain how our body produces voices, and the impact of age and gender on vocalisations. JJ also discusses how you can use your physical qualities to manipulate your voice, and what situations might lead you to do so.

Guest: JJ Aucouturier, Principal Researcher @ the French National Centre for Scientific Research
