Some weeks ago I auditioned to become the voice of a podcast through Voice123.com thinking it might be an interesting thing to work on. I also figured that, if the producers of this podcast liked my work, they would keep using me and that leads to one of the most important keys to making a living as a voice-over talent: steady work, or clients who keep sending you work.
Well, I was cast for the job, and have been recording the narrations for them now for a couple of weeks. The podcast is called “bridges“, and is published along with a text version by the Office of Science and Technology of the Embassy of Austria in Washington, DC.
The, first thing we worked on were some previous issues. If you explore those issues, you’ll find my narrations on several of the articles. One thing I really like about the way the “bridges” site is designed is that there’s a flash player embedded in the page, so you don’t have to download the sound file unless you want to. You can just listen right on the spot. And there’s a download link too, if you’d rather do that.
(Update) I’ve updated this post now with a link to Vol. 9, which is the newest issue as of this posting. But, in the meantime, the one thing I think you’ll notice if you explore some of the articles, is that each article, no matter what the topic, is well-written and interesting to read.
