Poppy: A microphone is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal.
Microphones are used in many applications.
Microphones are in telephones.
Microphones are in hearing aids.
Several different types of microphones are often in use.
The most common is a dynamic microphone.
This uses a coil of wire suspended in a magnetic field.
A condenser microphone uses a capacitor plate.
Microphones typically need to be connected to a preamp.
This makes the signal louder so it can be recorded or reproduced.
The earliest devices to use a microphone are acoustic megaphones.

Poppy: Hello.
They won’t plug in my microphone.
Why is this microphone not plugged in?
Hello microphone.
Who’s plugging my microphone in?
They won’t let me plug in my microphone.
Why is this microphone not plugged in?
You don’t believe me do you.
It’s not plugged in.
But this microphone’s not plugged in.
This microphone’s not plugged in.

Poppy: [speaking into a microphone; her voice echoes and rises in pitch] Hello.
Why does that sound so funny?
[speaking into the microphone again, this time with pitched down echoes as well] Hellooo.
Doritos.
McDonald’s.
Monster energy drink.
Those are some of my favorite things.
My favourite part about Monster energy drink is the logo.
What else should we say?
Ooh, I like that.
The devil.
