I never miss an episode!

This Week In Voice is a must listen to podcast for voice industry insiders — and, for that matter, anyone interested in voice-first. Host Bradley Metrock curates a great set of questions and leads an insightful discussion among a varying set of panelists each week. This podcast is one of the key ways I stay up to speed on what’s happening in the industry, and I always appreciate the diverse set of viewpoints I get as a listener. Five stars!
