Here’s his website, do use him for all your audio needs: https://beeproductive.co.uk/By the way, Nat is a naturally husky VO anyway, but this was some extreme husk... She's better now though, fully recovered from whatever it was and back to husking around at a sensible level. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-vo-social-north-podcast/message
