🎙️ Voice-Overs for Podcasting
When my publisher at Allworth Press contacted me to write a creative performance approach to podcasting, I was flattered. I was selected as the author based on the success, in-depth information, and organization of There’s Money Where Your Mouth Is. So, I pitched the Voice-Overs For Podcasting book content, chapters, layout, and page length. They sent me a contract and an advance payment.
Then I began the 100 hours of research and another 100 hours of writing. I leaned into my advertising background in radio sales and media buying. As a business owner, the expected and unexpected coin flip that a new idea or product launch brings. And as a voice-over and on-camera actor, the prep, production, and post production required to achieve a finished product that you’re proud to share.
I interviewed several podcasters that I know or work directly with and shared their unique and diverse insights.
