Job Description

We're looking for a couple with a home-recording facility to record two ESL podcasts. Two voices are required (one male and one female). Our budget for both podcasts is around $500.

Each podcast includes some narration and two short dialogues. I'd like the narrator to take one of the dialogue parts as well. As the listeners are ESL, please speak only very slightly slower than normal speed. Ennuciate clearly.

No sounds effects or background sounds required.

Each podcast should be a single mp3 file as small as possible without affecting the quality.

------------------------------------------
Please find a portion of the script below for audition purposes. Full script available in attachment.
-------------------------------------------

Listen now to an exchange between Joe, the manager, and his subordinate Sally. Joe has generally tried to avoid encounters with her. He believes she has a hot temper and he doesn’t want to enflame it. This time, however, he has received a complaint from Sally, the project manager. And Joe must deal with the situation. Sally seems to enjoy making unpleasant and critical remarks. She is especially rude when Joe criticizes her behaviour at work. Pay special attention to words that might incite anger or hard feelings—on both sides.

DIALOGUE 1

Joe: Sally, I have just learned that you have initiated a points-allocation that was not assigned to you.
Sally: As usual, I don’t know what you are talking about.
Joe: Let me remind you: Sally is the project manager for the Baldrige assessment. She is the one who decides what work will be done and by whom. She has just informed me that you did the points-allocation, even though it was not assigned to you.
Sally: I didn’t know I couldn’t.
Joe: Sally decides who can and who can’t do specific jobs.
Sally: It takes her so long to make up her mind. I thought I could expedite the work by just doing it myself.
Joe: Again, Sally determines the assignments for this project.
Sally: Maybe if you’d appoint me the project manager, the project would be done on time.
Joe: Sally is the project manager. You will take direction from her. Is that clear?
Sally: Clear. But unfair!
