In this episode, Racheal talks to Dave how she came to create The VoiceOver Network back in 2013, how the rise of social media took the voice over industry from an exclusive club to a legitimate career route for the many. Rachael and Alan also talk Dave through how expansive the voice over industry really is and that it isn’t exclusive to commercials.
Furthermore, Rachael and Alan give Dave an insight into how the voice over industry is continuously changing and what the dynamics between artist and agent are like in the current day, with voice over artists now able to find work themselves.
