International podcast day - The future is audio and we the youth are ready
I used to take part in Gujarati theatre, and there, my teacher made us work hard on voice modulation, pitch and tone. Despite this, I never really liked to take part in any debates or speeches.
Then came the pandemic and boom! Now we had to contend with another challenge – video classes. While serving the purpose, and helping us learn (for which I am eternally grateful), there is still an invasive component to it that more and more people are beginning to get uncomfortable about. How to stay connected while feeling comfortable? The answer came through an unusual medium – audio!
I was invited to be a panel speaker by Bookosmia on their podcast on Bakstage app. I believe that hobbies must be taken seriously and I was asked to share my thoughts about that.

On my first day experiencing Bakstage as a speaker, I was very nervous. I kept drinking water so that my voice didn’t crack due to a parched throat right when I was speaking. That would have been very embarrassing. However, once I started speaking, I slipped into my speaker role.
Despite no one being able to see my face, the expressions still danced across my face. I kept the correct volume, a conversational tone and spoke fluently.
As I learnt, in an audio platform, we need to convey our emotions and expressions only through our words and so we have to work on our tone and pitch.

Overall, I loved the podcast experience. Not only did I enjoy listening to other speakers but I also got amazing feedback to inprove my writing skills.
