There are a lot of VO podcasts but this is GOLD

Thanks guys for all your generous help in the VO biz.
Love your energy and quality guests!

Good in for for VO artists, but....

I find out ironic that the "experts" in audio can't or don't have the ability to regulate their volume. I play the episodes straight through and some parts are low that I have to turn up the volume... sometimes George is blaringly loud and Dan sounds far away from the mic. Their intro is loud af, as are their commercials. It just takes away from them touting their expertise.

My Regular Monday Listen!

One of the first VO podcasts that I started listening to was Voice Over Body Shop. It is fun to listen to and I always learn so much. Dan Lenard and George Whittam both are experts at tech of VO – how to set up the studio, how to fix your sound etc. They also have years of experience in the studio. They start off with tech talk, they move on to the latest VO news and then they have an interview. In the course of the podcast (or you can watch live video on Monday night), you learn about problems people have with their audio and how to fix it, some important news of the day and then the interviews are always amazing. I learn so much from the interviews and often they point you in a direction of more learning. Definitely worth a listen.
