MCVOP has no order today 😱... But if you're up for an earful of fun chatter with Kevin and Bobbi, then it's time to get this show on the road! Because these mics were made for TALKIN' and that's just what we'll do. So let's get ready to BABBLE!!!
Let’s keep it real and get an agents point of view! Owner and head talent agent Erik Sheppard of the Sheppard Agency, tells it like it is in today’s episode.
What is the future of the voiceover industry? Why do you need an agent? How should you submit to an agent?
Well, get ready, because Erik gives his honest opinion on all of these questions and more. Right here, on The Middle Class VO Podcast!
One thing to remember is that mood follows behavior. Especially when everything seems to turn into a HUGE PAIN IN THE A$$! It doesn't matter if your biggest pet peeve is marketing, balancing life and work together, or dealing with those annoying sounds around you when you are trying to record. As voice actors we have to roll with the punches and do things we don't always like to do in order to keep moving forward. Join Bobbi and Kevin as they chat with voice actors Brigid Reale, Steve Zarro and Jenn Henry about their biggest pet peeves and hear how they get through it all on a daily basis. Who knows, the things that drive you bonkers as a voice actor could be the same as these working voice over artists!
No matter what language or languages you speak, be proud of your voice. Use what you have to your advantage and create the voiceover career you desire.
From being a bi-lingual vo talent, dealing with diversity in the business, and manifesting the career you deserve, Sophia Cruz tells us everything and MORE!

And hopefully, by the end of this episode, you will not only have had good laughs, but are also given a new outlook on things that don’t always happen the way you hoped for in this business!
One word. AUDITIONS. It's a necessary evil that must be done if you want to make it as a voice over artist. So with that said, it's time to start shaking things up! Make your auditions different, be yourself and don't overthink it. When you hit record, the tiniest choices you make matter! Which is why Kevin and Bobbi are going to be sharing some of their recent auditions that have booked them work, and sharing their thoughts on why they were chosen to get the job done! Plus! Don't miss the HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Right here on The Middle Class VO Podcast!
