We are so very different...

For a dozen or more years I've carried, what is now a very road worn piece of laminated plastic. Inside the laminate is a simple series of sentences. They're really important. Everyone who records with me has read them. And I always leave them alone to read them. To inhale them if you will, to take them on board.

The card simply says:

"In a minute we are going to press record and I will give you a nod and then we are off. Take a deep breath now, get comfortable with the headphones and relax. When you hear me talk, make eye contact with me and just talk to me. Before you know I will be saying thanks for coming on the show and we'll be done. Only tell me things you know are truthful and accurate remember I'm a journalist, and the main thing is, be you. That's what people want to hear, not me"

People seem to like recording with me. Whether it's in the freezing cold biting wind off the Baltic Sea at -33 on the Finnish coast, or it's in The Roosevelt Room in The White House in DC. I make it an experience.

Because if it's an experience then that translates into an enjoyable eight or ten minutes for a listener. A listener more likely to then share that podcast on social media or with a friend. Or to listen to the message that we crafted and act upon it.

When people listen to "podcasts" the bridge has long since been crossed where many podcasts are series based, or are friends chewing the fat around a table talking about soccer or Star Wars. Or it's a celeb appearing on multiple popular podcasts, because they have a book out.

Well. This isn't what we do. That's not what you are I going to do.

The Voxiferi Experience

My speciality, and that of all the people I work hard to train, is getting a crafted audio vehicle out to the masses which drives attention and encourages communication and discussion.

The skill of doing that involves research, it involves a need for your interviewer to be surrounding aware. Very in tune with the ambient stuff in the background that add to the atmosphere to the listener, but also able to stitch together the fabric of a show.

In the early 1980s my late father took me to a lending library in Kent and borrowed me some 1960s / 1970s vinyl LP records made by the BBC Sound Effects Team. These were the folk who went out with recorders and microphones to record doors slamming, hinges creaking, the sounds of crowd noise, ambient noise of people drinking cups of tea and eating cakes in 1960s tearooms. Cars accelerating and braking, dogs barking and swans flapping their wings.

And a career was born.

Want to hire Voxiferi ?

If you want to record with Voxiferi, it is a two way relationship. Maybe one you will never forget and one that most people want to repeat, because we're proud to create output that makes listeners sit up.

And you want that listener, listening in the dark, to have a reason to go back to the start and re-listen to every word you spoke, and then to share that with everyone they know.

That's what we do.

We're not a podcast company, that would be way too simplistic.
