Something Cheeky ,

Engaging and Interesting

This podcast is really great. Alison starts with interesting news, and it's not the kind of news that makes you want to move to an empty island. It's timely and relevant to the audio world. Her next segment is a specific topic that is always helpful. She's very engaging and her voice is a pleasure to listen to. She's also very supportive of other people in her field and features them on the show. #ladypodsquad

The Voices Are Not Just In Your Head…

If you hear words spoken on a podcast, on the radio, on TV, or even in video games, there’s a better than good chance that someone spoke those words. How did they do that? What businesses drive that? What tools do they use? Use Your Voice covers such topics. Great resource for news and information of interest for people who - wait for it - use their voices (or who want to). Short, consistent, and well produced - Use Your Voice earns a five-star rating (even if the host thinks such ratings should be abolished).

Not as nice as I sound ,

Great Wisdom, Thoughtful Insight

Helpful insight for people doing voice over, narration, voice acting, podcasting, audiobooks...the works! Highly recommended for anyone in, or looking to break in.
