I listen to the Clark Howard podcast. It’s a show with tips about saving money and stuff that my brother pointed out to me. Anyway, the guy is a pretty slow speaker. Today, I unpaused the podcast and wondered why it wasn’t playing. Clark was pausing to breathe. It reminded me of Vanessa’s comment that Clark is a very slow speaker. For grins, here’s a sample of his voice (51 seconds). Here’s a sample where I removed the silences (29 seconds).
