In no particular order, here are the Top 4 No Fluff Voiceover Podcast to tune into:
1. Acting Business Boot Camp
Peter Pamela Rose is a casting director, certified life and career coach for the entertainment industry. In her podcast, she breaks down the business of being a working actor into simple, actionable steps. I love her energy. It’s always a delight to listen to her. She is straight up, funny, gives tough love with positive encouragement to help you keep focus and stay on course when you’re feeling mystified with the inner workings of the industry without the fluff.

4. A VOs Journey Podcast
Anthony Pica is a voice actor and helps new and upcoming VO artist grow their business and side step all the crazy things he has stepped on. What I enjoy about Anthony’s podcast is that he is non-judgemental and is down-to-earth in his approach. He shares his missteps and the lessons he’s learned along the way and is open to people wanting to explore different ways to creating success in their voiceover career.
There you have it! Remember as you navigate your voice over journey, voiceover actors will give you tips and tricks left and right on what it takes to be successful.
At the end of the day, you have to keep in mind the tips and tricks are still their own. It’s what works for them. So take their tips as a grain of salt or as a new perspective.
If it resonates, you still need to test the tips and tricks for yourself to see if it works for you. Some will, some won’t, next! The key is to figure out what does work for you and apply it. The rest? toss.
