I've recently seen David Sedaris and Sarah Vowell for the first time - being a NPR junkie, I know these voices very well, but now I've put voices to faces, and it's terribly odd. It reminds me of watching a puppet show, clearly these voices aren't coming from those bodies. My mental picture of these people must be correct and these people parading around on TV are fakes.

Weird.

Also, Sarah Vowell reminds me a little bit of my college girlfriend.

Also weird.

I had a similar experience, watching Sarah Vowell on the Daily Show tonight. I only know her through her book, Partly Cloudy Patriot, and to hear her voice was profoundly disturbing. I can't imagine her on radio -- her voice is so high-pitched. Yet perhaps her distinctive voice is exactly what makes her such a good match for radio . . .

Her voice reminds me a little of Yeardley ("Lisa Simpson") Smith's, so naturally, I expected them to look alike, too.

Come to think of it, Sarah Vowell and David Sedaris' voices are awfully similar - high pitched and nasal, both.
