lol sorry, OP that happens to me a lot. I think that's a nervous tick? It's an habit hard to break but with some work you can get used to it.

Yeah, podcasts are no place for people with annoying speech habits of any kind. I had to stop listening to one podcast because the guy breathed heavily into the mic. It was so damn distracting!

Does anyone have any good fannish podcasts to rec, preferably multifandom or comics-focused ones?

(Anonymous) 2017-03-18 10:50 pm (UTC)(link) isn't bad. Good sound quality and some thought given to themes and layout.

I don't notice this at all. Of course I think people should be able to adjust their speech for different situations, but for whatever reason a bunch of fans talking to each other on a podcast doesn't register as a situation where they should sound professional... They just sound like regular people and that doesn't bother me. I can forgive most sound issues as well.

I have no idea how I would feel about this on podcasts, because I don't really listen to any. But this secret has me questioning myself, because I use "Like" and "I mean" and "Okay, so" and stuff like that all the time when I'm posting on comms like this one.

I think I use speech tics like that more often when I'm writing than when I'm talking, actually, because it helps keep things casual and lets me express ideas without making me feel like I'm writing an essay or something. *shrugs*

I'm not sure if this is also something people find annoying. If it is...I guess I'm kind of sorry, but also kind of not?
