Plus, she's a good writer and commentator, which helps! It's not a voice you'd want to hear every day, but it's avoided being offputting (for many people) and fallen into a "quirky" category.
I think she must speak with her mouth closed, because it sounds like she talks THROUGH her nose.
Eh, she's about as successful as one can be in the profession of "radio essayist".
So whomever told her she should do radio was apparently giving good advice.
And her radio bits got her noticed by someone at Pixar, and I imagine that one gig probably made her more money then a thousand This American Life appearances.
So like it or hate it, her voice is certainly serving her well.
This American Life is a show that introduced NPR audiences to Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris, the late David Rakoff, and host Ira Glass, all examples of people without classic radio voices, but who are on the air because of the quality of their writing.
When Sarah publishes a new book, I always get the audio version because I love hearing her words in her voice. I wrote to Vowell about some dubious assertions/mistakes in her book Assassination Vacation a few years ago and never heard back from her, though, so to hell with her.This American Life is a show that introduced NPR audiences to Sarah Vowell, David Sedaris, the late David Rakoff, and host Ira Glass, all examples of people without classic radio voices, but who are on the air because of the quality of their writing. I guess if Vowell had just a regular voice, I wouldn't notice it, but her voice is distictive and she has learned to use it well.As has already been pointed out, she's about as successful as you can get on the radio. She usually has something to say that is worth listening to.I wouldn't choose to listen to her for too long though. Starlee Kline or whatever her name is has a similar sort of voice.I didn't mind her initially but I was listening her on TAL today and for some reason her lisping really grated on me.The WORST is the new host on Stuff You Missed in History Class.
