The Erik and Ember Show Episode One: Joan Baker

Awww yeah boy, the long wait is finally over.  Prepare yourself to be dazzled by the most informative and entertaining podcast the world of voiceover podcasting has seen in quite some time!1

While Ember and I alone easily have enough personality to keep you riveted for hours, it certainly didn’t hurt that our very first guest is my number one voice crush, the lovely and talented voice talent, coach and author Joan Baker.  We had a blast talking shop with her and she was kind enough to give us some background on her incredible career and dropped some pearls of wisdom for those of you still building up your business.  All of you should be humbled and thank her profusely.  What a great talent.

Oh, and by the way, she is also a stone cold fox:

The show runs a little long but only because it is so jam packed with voiceovery goodness that I couldn’t bring myself to cut any more of it.  Check it out on the groovy new podcast player3 over on the sidebar, get it from iTunes by clicking the button underneath or subscribe to the rss feed.  Be sure to share your love with Joan in the comments, just keep your paws to yourself.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that the awesome Dave DeAndrea is our announcer and he produced the intro, outro, and stingers as well.  I think we can all agree that they rock.  Find him at Dave and give him all of your money.

In case you are interested our theme song is “Tuco” by one of my favorite bands, Keelhaul.

1. I have to learn how to write more enticing copy.
2. I have a thing for chicks who bend their right arm.  I’m a freak like that.
3. It kind of sucks actually.  If anyone knows of a better looking one please enlighten me.
