    In this episode, Chris Schwager (Co-founder and Video Marketer of Ridge Films) is joined by David Cicarelli (CEO of Voices.com) to discuss everything audio -- how the company Voices.com became a disruptor for the long process of finding voice talent for businesses, how the future of voice-overs combined with AI synthetic voices is soon to change, and what if a CEO's voice can generate credibility to a video ad, better than a voice talent?
