Suggested Podcasts for Voice Actor Accent Research

As a voice actor I know that I occasionally need references for various accents from around the world. There are great accent research sites out there in the world and various online databases of sample texts but I thought I’d start making a list of accents I hear in Podcasts. As a podcast listener and maker I know there’s a good variety of both scripted, conversational and acted (audio drama) podcasts that each reflect different styles of speech. I decided to start making a list of accents I find in podcasts for myself but I’ll make it public here for other voice actors as well.

Over the past several months of 2016 I have formed a working relationship with Jim Martin from Hauntology Productions. What began as a simple voice over narration project advanced to a regular back and forth due to my love for the subject matter. I now work regularly for him as a creative strategist, content writer, project planner AND paranormal video narrator. Most recently I assisted in the research and interview question planning for his interview with Elizabeth Saint from Destination America’s THE GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN.

The interview with Elizabeth can be viewed on Hauntology Productions’ site here: Link

Which Boom Arm Works Upside Down with a Yeti? Rode? Neewer? Pyle?

 

I needed to figure out which microphone boom arm to rig up in my closet with my Yeti microphone and made a video for anyone else with the same problem.

[UPDATE] Final result was that I had to use a metal adapter to screw the Yeti on to the Neewer mount. The shock mount was just overkill and not needed. Also needed to block the boom arm with a sweater because I could hear my audio bouncing off the metal arm.

Also HOW MANY TIMES can I talk about the drill hole on the bottom of the Yeti in this video?
