The HuffPo article about how people hear, and utimately, criticize women's voices, versus men's kind of blew my mind. I'm beginning a new career in voiceover, so I may be a tick touchy about this. Comments from both men and women describe the podcasters mentioned in the article, and other women, as being whiny and annoying. That they overuse the word "like", thereby making themselves sound less intelligent. The same comments did not apply to "like-minded" men (see what I did there, with the word "like"?) and even NPR's Ira Glass -- IRA GLASS, people! -- said he was rarely criticized for his distinctive-could-be-called-whiny voice.
