Dan O’Day has a great post about how forthcoming VO folks can be with information, even when sharing info with the competition.
I can absolutely attest to this. Not only do you have generous people like Bob Souer, Connie Terwilliger, Philip Banks, and too many others to name who will absolutely talk your ear off with great advice and stories, the VO-BB is by far the best resource for VO info on the ‘net. Even people who are auditioning for the same gig as you will offer helpful advice. Truly an amazing thing.
