Across a crowded room, I saw you – audio encore

Many people probably know my affinity for the Modern Love podcast (New York Times, NPR-WBUR Boston). I’ve always loved reading love stories, but once I started hearing them being read, I started to gain a whole new appreciation for the human voice and the emotion that can be evoked from it.

So, I decided to make try to make one on my own.

A few months ago, I wrote this essay. What you’re about to hear is an abridged version of that essay, with some background music, sounds, and added ambiance.

The finished product was something that I was excited with, and made me realize that it’s something that I want to do more of in the future!

Check out “Across a crowded room, I saw you” here:

Let me know what you think! Also, if you have any stories that you would like to have dramatized, I’d love to know about those and collaborate with you on them! πŸ™‚

(Disclaimer: I’m not an audio or sound engineer. I’m just a girl with a story, a “mic” (read: my phone, which reminds me that I still need to go get a real mic!), some Audacity training, and a story.)
