At the heart of every Toddcast episode is a personal conversation. Editing reduces it for length, accelerates the story for dramatic effect and puts everything in the correct order when events are remembered out of sequence. Music and monologue turn it into something we recognize as a podcast. But what does a human story sound like, organic and unprocessed? In this unedited chat with Natasha Fraser, she remembers her life growing up as the child of a teenage mother.
