    BONUS Episode: Why The Voice Over Junction?

    BONUS Episode: Why The Voice Over Junction?

    I'm so happy to be back with a bonus episode after a bit of a break due to my hectic work schedule!

    I have some fun interviews scheduled in the very near future, but before I got started with those, I wanted to do a quick episode about The Voice Over Junction itself.  

    Since starting my podcast, I've heard two common questions:
    Why did you start a podcast?Why did you call it The Voice Over Junction?I popped into my booth to answer those very questions!  It's not a long episode, but I hope you'll enjoy hearing how I got to where I am today with this podcast venture. 

    More episodes to come in the weeks ahead, and I'm so excited about the future (I hope you are, too).
