Hump day for Voice Week!

“Yes, Mr. Carson worked under my supervision. I hired him. I would describe him as…dependable. Professional. I can’t attest to his mental state. He didn’t bring his personal life to work with him, but he seemed a very stable young man. To be honest, this came as a surprise. I thought at first there must be some kind of mix-up and it had been Hank Martin. People often mixed the two of them up; they shared an office, were old friends, I believe. Will Carson was not the one I would have guessed would go off the deep end.”

  1. A very professional voice spouting off very professional and usual stuff. It gets a little warmer around the middle, though, and especially at the end. Older than Will, but not by much, I would think? I dunno. Doesn’t quite sound middle-aged to me, but I’m not sure why. Also seems male, but I wouldn’t bet on that.
    Very different from the other two. And the mystery still unfolds…

    • You’re right, he’s male. I did picture him 40s or 50s, but on further reading I think he does sound at the younger end of that spectrum, or maybe upper 30s.

  2. Interesting that we get the mention of another person…now my suspicions are heightened 🙂

    Love the difference. From good ole gal to suited professional.

  3. We got some names, now, which is good or else I would have started getting confused. I love how this is even more detached than the first – it makes it possible for us to understand the situation as is, without layers and layers of emotion to dig through constantly. Looking forward to more!!

    • Ah, yes. Names are much more useful than pronouns for clarifying a story. Hopefully today’s will make it even clearer. Thanks for reading!

  4. I like the professional, slightly disinterested tone of this voice. Completely different from the other two. You haven’t got much time left to solve the mystery…

  5. Hmm…now I want to hear from this other person. I really enjoyed this, very well done.
