    J.S. sounds like Elliot Gould!
    Although a lot of Americans sound like Elliot Gould to me.

    As always, what J.S. Gilbert writes is interesting and educational, and many times…fun! It’s great to finally “hear” him speak those words (instead of reading them on a board somewhere!)
    Thanks for taking time to deliver a great podcast… and I look forward to more of your words of wisdom!

    J.S. reminds us that our voice is just one element we bring to a session. Our life experiences and interests undergird and enhance our work. Regardless of the electronic atmosphere that permeates our business, we work for people. Clients appreciate the whole package and we earn their trust and business as a bonus!

    Thanks so much, J. S. We’ve been waiting to hear from you here — and great advice is always worth the wait! Useful, practical information.
    Keep those podcasts coming,

    Thanks for the nice words. I’ve turned in installment #2 to David yesterday (It’s a bit longer than 1) and I’m going to record #3 this week.
    If anybody has specifics of what they might want me to cover, drop me a note at jsgilbert@pacbell.net

    As an old guy trying to break into vo as my third career, I appreciate your insight.

    Hi J.S.
    Thanks for your words of wisdom.
    As a British Voice Talent I was currently getting stuck in the same rut and not expanding, but these tips will definitely help!
    It is so true about your life experiences and how they can help you really understand a project. For example I did one for a Diabetes campaign and I was really passionate about it and as I am Diabetic I really understood the text and project as a whole and could clearly translate to the listener what the producers wanted to get across.
    Thank you!

    J.S.: Great to actually HEAR your voice, finally! And good stuff here. Yes, I actually DID write down a few things and immediately got a couple of good ideas. Thanks for sharing your time and experience and I’m looking forward to the next one!

    Great stuff!
    Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge on the podcasts as well as the advice you give on the forums.
    I really like your straight forward approach on things!
    Take care,

    You shure does talk purty, JS. Thanks for getting out of the Jacuzzi and sharing those solid pointers.

    Hey JS
    This is invaluable stuff. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    That was actually recorded from the Jacuzzi Robert. I have a special filter setting that notches out the sound of the spa jets.
    They should put a warning on the microphones not to use them in a hot tub though.
    Thanks again for the kind words. Working on Segment #3 this weekend.

    Robert – don’t listen to J.S. about the hot tub. His is like mine right now – no water and the power turned off – too freakn’ hot and the electricity costs are nuts.
    J.S. – where ever it was that you recorded this – just wanted you to know that it was swell! Great points, well delivered.
    (These podcasts are truly one of the best resources ever in the history of the world… well in the voiceover world anyway.)
