Lake Bell: The Human Voice

Rich Fury

A true multi-hyphenate, writer-director-actor Lake Bell is obsessed with how we sound. Her new audiobook celebrates that “least-appreciated” trait: our voices.

The human voice is familiar territory for Lake Bell. She wrote, directed and starred in the film “In a World” about a vocal coach trying to make it as a voice-over artist for movie trailers. Now she’s returning to the subject with the audiobook “Inside Voice: My Obsession with How We Sound.” It’s an exploration and celebration of the human voice in all its quirks and intricacies, featuring guest appearances from other actors, interactive games and even music. This Friday at noon, Lake Bell joins us to talk about her favorite thing — the voice.
