"When you make something, it’s almost like there’s a canon and all of these people’s voices come into this canon: your mom’s voice, Ira Glass’s voice, your neighbor down the street--his voice. And it’s up to you to find the thing that feels true and resonates with your heart and to like take that out and put that into words." -- Megan Tan, Millennial podcast
That’s what Megan Tan tries to do every time she sits down in her closet to record an episode of Millennial, her podcast about maneuvering through your twenties. Megan joined a conversation at Werk It, a women's podcasting festival, moderated by Manoush Zomorodi, the host and managing editor of Note to Self, about finding your voice on the microphone. Here’s Manoush and Megan, along with Happier’s Gretchen Rubin, How to be a Girl’s Marlo Mack and Why Oh Why’s Andrea Silenzi.
Werk It: The Podcast is a compilation of the best moments from the live event. Both the festival and the podcast are produced by WNYC Studios and are made possible by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting with additional support from The Harnisch Foundation.
