You ever get the sense that editor-in-chief Ezra Klein likes to hear himself speak?

Well, it’s true. He really does like the bravado of his own voice. In his head, he writes, it’s “deep, resonant, commanding.” You know, the kind of voice that was created for “high-pressure” situations like being in a plane that’s being shot down, or fighting zombies.

Except, as he knows all too well, that is not actually how his voice sounds. It’s apparently much less impressive when he’s transcribing interviews and listening to himself, which he says makes him rather uncomfortable.

Ezzy went and learned the science of why from a site called Head Squeeze TV on YouTube.
