The Erik and Ember Show Episode Four: Billy Serow

Well we were finally able to get some phone time with New York super-agent Billy Serow and bothered him with some of your questions.  He was so impressed with them that he decided to sign all of you who wrote in on the spot.  You should be expecting a phone call from him any minute now.  I’m kidding of course, he scoffed indignantly at most of them but I edited those parts out so if you just close your eyes and listen it sounds as though he was touched.

Actually, he could not have been nicer and gave some pretty helpful insights from the other side of the glass.  Seriously guys, grab one of your crayons and write this stuff down because it is gold.1 Can you imagine actually learning a thing or two from this ridiculous show?  I’m just as surprised as the rest of you.  I think I have to go lay down now.

Clickety-click on the player over there to the right or subscribe with iTunes to hear all the agenty goodness for yourself.

We are still kind of screwing around with the audio on these things because Skype kind of sucks but we are at a loss as to what else to use.  Ember and Billy sound pretty good on this one although for some reason I sound like I’m at the bottom of a well.  Really though, what do you guys want for free?

1. The advice, not the crayon dummy.

Your Chance To Harass a Big Time Fancy Pants Voiceover Talent Agent

Looking to get the inside scoop on what makes voiceover agents tick?  Want to know why they haven’t returned your calls?  Do they really listen to all those CDs you have been sending in over the years?  Is it true they feast on the blood of the innocent and will only sign talent who have given their souls to Satan?1

The next guest on The Erik And Ember Show will be hotshot talent agent Billy Serow from Abrams Artists Agency in New York which, for those who may not know, is a particularly prestigious rep to have in these parts and many a young talent have tear stained pillow cases from staying up late dreaming about walking into their gleaming offices.

The question asking thingy over on the right (under the podcast player) has been reopened for the occasion so here is your chance to suggest your question and Ember and I will in turn ask Mr. Serow.  Got it?  Good.  Use this opportunity wisely young ones.  If your question is particularly stupid feel free to submit it anonymously to avoid bringing shame to your family.

1. This is true but I doubt he’ll admit it.
