  1. This is great stuff, folks. Andy has tapped into the VO community deeply to plumb the riches of experience and dedication to present a series of podcasts that are second to none. If the drive and inspiration of Bob Bergen doesn’t get you then the quiet dedication of Dave Courvoisier must surely be your cup of tea…
    It’s a great opportunity to pick the brains of the cream of the voice over crop…enjoy (and learn)!

  2. Just as I was zipping out the hotel door, I saw your article pop up on my iPad screen. I wanted to sent kudos out to both of you for sharing so many interesting interviews, in this case, a written interview about Andy, who is sharing podcast interviews about many wonderful VO folks, recorded at VOICE 2010. It’s lovely to hear their voices again! Very clever, you two, and very well done!

  3. Great stuff from Andy. I just lstened to the interview with Bob Bergen. It was very insightful and also very inspiring. I signed up for the blog emails and will listen to more of these for sure!
    As for Bob… a total class act. He talked about Casey Kasem telling him to “pay it forward”… and Bob does do that all the time. He has has given me advice in the past and I know that if I have another question for him, he would be happy to answer it.
    Keep up the good work Andy!

  4. Thanks for all these kind comments, and for Stephanie sharing the links…
    This started by accident, but has turned into something both fun and, I hope, inspirational. We all have a story which includes highs and lows, and I’m awestruck by how generously people are sharing the details of their journeys.
    Stay tuned, there’s lots more to come… and if I haven’t asked you for your story yet you’ll have more to share when I do 🙂
