    It’s your vocal fry / vocal creak – sorry, but it’s always bothered me a bit. From one man with a naturally high voice (me) to another (you), stop trying to pull it lower. When women do it, it’s a dopey affectation. When men do it, it seems to be tied to an image of masculinity…

    Regarding your voice.

    Basically, you sound like the male version of Zoe Chase.
