Episode 102 - Let’s Talk About Tech, Baby

March 4, 2020

Hi friends! Happy Thursday!

I can't believe it's already March! Spring will be here before we know it and I, for one, am ready!

With a new month, comes a new theme for me to explore on the podcast. This month's topic? Technology - as it relates to voiceovers, of course. Technology is the driving force in voiceovers; studios have it and need it, and these days, so does talent.

I'm going to be honest with you - tech has ALWAYS been my Achilles heel. I get the feeling some of you might struggle too, and that's what this month is all about!

Listen in as I talk through how the relationship between VO talent and technology has changed over time, as well as talk through some of my personal struggles with tech.
