The background noise was soothing as it was not entirely quiet, with just the faint yet audible hum of the air conditioner working. The interviewee’s conversational tone and matter-of-fact style helped me because I am used to that sort of speaking. The interview covered a sad topic, but she helped me understand her experiences.
