Week 6 Kaiser

This photo shows Todd and a few of his Iraqi soldiers posing next to a truck.

The week before spring break is here and it is time to show something has been happening for the last month and a half. I am closing in on the first and second podcast. I have cut them all together and had Grace listened to the first one after I recorded a few lines I still needed. She said I need to speak with more confidence and become part of the story. I am not sure how to do that. I guess I don’t know what to sound like. I have always had an easy time manipulating my voice, but why is this difficult. I am not sunk yet, just short on time. I need to re-record my lines in my podcasts.

I also need to start this story. It almost writes itself because Todd has given me so much material. He really has had an adventurous life. But if you hadn’t met him, his life would sound like a war hero from a book or a movie. Without seeing the scars he wears when he discusses these things, he would almost become a romantic character of war rather than  real person with kids and a mortgage. I am thinking this story is going to be made or broken on if I can give Todd a face to go with his stories.
