Will the Host of Skeptoid Lose His Voice?

No, it's just a sensationalist headline. You should never trust headlines like that.
However I have been having some pain on my larynx when I speak, and it's been going on for about six weeks. So I went in to see Dr. Michael Cho at Head & Neck Associates in Mission Viejo, CA for a laryngoscopy. This is where they slide a longer fiber optic camera called a laryngoscope up through your nose and down your throat, in order to have a look at the vocal cords and voice box. Yes, it feels pretty funky, although the nasal cavity and throat are numbed.
If you get grossed out, don't watch:
Dr. Cho did not see anything that concerned him, so it looks like I'm OK for now. But the fun sciencey laryngoscopy was pretty neat. Enjoy.
