Hi {{first_name}},
Maarten just texted me he’s still at the pool. Rightfully so, it’s holiday season! While Maarten is on holiday to recharge and spend quality time with his family, I’ve collected some of the best voice related links from the past week.
It’s nice to share a bit on how we create this newsletter. It’s not as much work as some people seem to think. Maarten and I both read a lot throughout the week. We only had to tweak our habits a little, to make sure that we add interesting links as we find them to a draft of the newsletter.
Sunday evening, after we both have our kids in bed, it’s time to sit down and start (re)reading the articles we collected over the week, clearing the titles, and write the summaries. Usually with some back and forth on if we should or shouldn’t add something. Usually there is a final re-read on Monday morning, and then it gets send out.
Anyways, on to the news!

There you have it. That was quite a bit of Alexa news, wasn’t it? If you want to get your hands on a good Alexa deal, I’m pretty sure that Amazon Prime Day will have a couple.
One more thing. Bret Kinsella from Voicebot is doing a bit of research on voice professionals. That might as well include you. Please help complete the picture though this questionnaire. And be sure to be complete in the podcasts you like when it comes to voice 😉.
If you are already on holiday: enjoy, otherwise: see you next week!
Cheers,
– Maarten & Sam
