Description of the podcast:
The podcast is organized by a sequence of scenes and stories. These scenes are thoroughly shaped so that you can even imagine the scene in your mind.
When you listen to the podcast, you can feel that the podcaster is trying to match her voice with the place. If the place it quiet, her voice becomes ambient. If the place is sunny, the voice becomes cheerful… You can hear her tone changing with scenes and stories.
Other than the presenter’s voice, the music and sound in this podcast also give the listener a tangible experience. For example, when the presenter said, “In the alley, there are old people chatting.”, you can hear their talking in the background. Or when she said “When you step into the ancient city of Lijiang,” you can hear the sound of street vendors in Lijiang.
