My cohosts and I find it that when we do vocal exercises before we record, we sound much better. Here’s a vid that used to help us with that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQNMCgKvOk0

Great question, Matthew!

A couple of things you can watch before recording are no chocolate or dairy as that clogs up the vocal passages. Drink water with lemon and eat a nice juicy apple.

There are so many exercises - something I can cover on the show for sure!

For me hot drinks are the killer. If I drink a hot drink before a link I can noticeably hear I am more breathy when doing following links.

Because I am a huge tea drinker though I tend to just leave it to become warm rather than hot and I’m then ok.

I find warming up with tongue twisters to be a huge helper. I narrate a lot of training videos, and read a lot of dialogue that is not part of my daily speech. Check out a cool video by Rodney Saulsberry, https://youtu.be/rkb-BxG2XaA, I find myself practicing them through the day to stay loose. :blush:
