"…And I know that sounds pathetic because speaking is something I'm supposed to do for a living more or less. But you want to do it according to your own rules, I suppose in your own time. And then it's up to people just to say, Well, that was the most boring thing I've ever heard, and it didn't make me swell. I can tell you that that anyway, shush, that's enough swell talk. That's a minute.…"

"…As your good friend Oscar Wilde said, be yourself because everyone else is taken. So, so happy you're here, being yourself. Welcome to Swell. And I know hiding is not a good thing. Life's too short, so, so happy that you're here not hiding. And your voice is delicious on this app. And we hope to hear more from you. And what else did Oscar Wilde say? I'm bringing him up because you are so delicious in portraying him.…"

It’s wonderful to hear your voice- no one else is you ! @stephenfry

"…Stephen and Deborah, great to hear both of your voices. And Stephen, wonderful to hear a proper accent. What a nice way to wake up in the morning to hear pleasantry. And especially because we are missing our friends and our new friends. Perhaps it's great to muse by just talking sometimes. And this is a wonderful form for that. So thanks for starting my day with a smile. And we will look forward to more conversations. Have a good one. Bye.…"

"…So I wake up. It's like 630 haven't had my coffee. My eyes are barely open, and I'm scrolling through my phone and I see I go, Is that Stephen Fry? And you know, there he is. So good to hear your voice. You have a way of making me laugh no matter what time of the day it is. It's just so good to hear your voice.…"

Good morning from CA!

"…Well, someone had to say it. And I'm glad you did. Stephen, thanks for pointing out that in clubhouse is very, very easy to have imposter syndrome, where you feel like you should be saying something and you should be called upon and be able to to speak. But it's just not the right time. You don't feel like it. I do like, swell for that reason, which is it's at my own pace.…"

"…Well, this is new. I followed you here from Twitter. Steven, you mentioned it, and I downloaded the app and thought, I'd see what it's all about. And I've listened to your swell. And it was a pleasant experience. It's very novel. It's nice to hear voices. I'm so used to reading text on a screen. It's really lovely to hear the sound of people's voices and other people's voices, not just celebrity voices.…"

"…Do you ever get those robocalls? First of all, in England, you guys getting a lot of those robot calls. Mike, we get calls all the time on our cell phone from, like, this is a car warranty center. Your cars exploded. Second question. Do you think those people are the person running the robocall? It's obviously not a sentient robot just standing around. Do you think that those people are in relationships? Are they dating?…"

asking @stephenfry personally about robo calls is all I want in life.
