So glad I stumbled upon this. The insight of one who has one, ...is invaluable, especially to us VO artists who are always wondering what is going on in the minds of the casting/clients/producers (so that we may send the right read). You folks handled the interview with such grace. I don't mean 'smooth elegance' but you let the person say what they wanted to without the usual interruptions of ego. Was so refreshing! Do you know of any way to contact Ania? Even DREAMWORKS ANIMATION doesn't list any contact email. Thanks for the podcast. Was well worth the time.

It was so helpful listening to your podcast to know what you look for in voiceover acting. I am a newbie at only 13 years old, so it is awesome to be able hear hints on how get our start. Reading about you and listening to your podcast gave me the connection I needed. Anytime I get an audition I look everyone up involving the team and learn as much as I can about them and this industry!
