    Episode 74 - Dan Lenard (The Home Studio Master)

    It was a great pleasure to finally get to meet and chat with Dan Lenard, The Home Studio Master. 
    Dan is best known to those of us in VO circles as the co-host of the popular Voice Over Body Shop (VOBS) show with George Whittham.
    We discuss the following topics:
    The origins of Dan's "Home Studio Master" consulting business; Dan's pre-VO jobs in education, radio, and insurance; Why so many voice actors make home recording harder than it has to be; WOVO - the World Voices Organization, a VO industry trade group, of which Dan is the president, that works to promote the voice over industry and showcase voice actors for the skilled pros that they are; Why voice actors should forget about producing "broadcast quality" audio; Dan's passion for the Buffalo Bills.

    Episode 73 - Gamal Hennessy (The Legal Side of Freelancing, Art, and Entertainment)

    Episode 73 - Gamal Hennessy (The Legal Side of Freelancing, Art, and Entertainment)

    This week, I'm honored to visit with Gamal Hennessy - attorney, author, and business consultant based in New York City.  Gamal specializes in boutique entertainment law, helping to guide writers, artists, AV post production folks, and others, through the oftentimes tricky and potentially treacherous waters of contracts and intellectual property law.
    We cover the following topics:
    - What is a contract, and why do artists need them?
    - Why artists should protect their legal interests as if their project will be "the next big thing;"
    - Why artists often collaborate on a revenue sharing basis rather than by paying up-front fees;
    - Why voice artists need to be aware of the rudiments of trademark infringement when making VO demos;
    - Why artists so often sign whatever piece of paper is put in front of them just to get the gig;
    - Is the PGA Tour a monopoly, and can the new breakaway Saudi Golf league steal the tour's best players?

    Episode 72 - Paul Alan Clifford (Making Church Tech Ministry Understandable)

    This week on "You're Hearing Voices," I chat with Paul Alan Clifford from beautiful Lexington, Kentucky.  Paul is the founder of Trinity Digital Media, a consulting business that helps churches to navigate their unique tech challenges, particularly livestreaming.  Paul is an expert in teaching  churches how to make the best use of ProPresenter software, and his YouTube tutorials on ProPresenter typically garner 2-3 times as many views as ProPresenter's own videos.
    We also talk about Paul's educational background, how he got his first exposure to videography, and when he discovered how technology could be used in the church.  We also touch on some unrelated topics such as proper church attire and the future of remote work.

    Colleen shares how a weekly newspaper column and a children's book led to the creation of her company, her coaching program for authors, and why certain books are made into audio and others aren't.
