Hi {{first_name}},
How are you doing?
We’re both appreciating the extra time with our kids.
Maarten enjoys joining the Voice lunch calls organized by Karol Stryja. Check it out, it’s an open Zoom call for Voice people. No real agenda and every time within the hour a good discussion develops. Even better is the serendipitious interaction. As a bonus, it is also proof the earth is not flat. Due to the roundness the call is 18:00 in Amsterdam. Yet sometimes its earlier 8-)
Sam has found some time to optimize his voice news hunting filters 🎯. It makes sourcing news so much easier 🤓. With regards to joining online sessions (we should make a schedule for your voice week;)), on Friday’s I recommend to check out the livestream of Voicing Tree. They’ll be doing their fourth episode next Friday. I like it for the simple format (discuss the news), the chat, and the familiar (international) faces in the show. It’s both low key, and quality.
Anyways, time to move on to the news!

That’s it for this week. It feels like after an initial slowdown in voice related news, the industry is gathering steam again. We’ll be back next week with the digest of all the voice news you might have missed.
Cheers,
