Here's the thing about audio flash fiction: You don't have an entire novel, or even a few thousand words, to establish a character and explore his or her vocal nuances. This is more like a thirty-second radio commercial, where every person has to read immediately as a certain (stereo)type. There's not a lot of room for subtlety.
Which is my roundabout excuse for why my military types all sound like McGruff the Crime Dog. "Take a bite out of crime—and take a cough drop for that sore throat!"
