In past episodes, we have discussed the broader consequences of Voice Over AI. 

Bob Bergen talked about the union's position, Tony Bellette discussed the repercussions of selling your voice, and on more than one occasion we have had a discussion around 'owning your voice". And for us, that's what a lot of this comes down to. Can you OWN your voice? What rights do you have, and can anyone just make a sample and use i...

## RANT ALERT ##

This show may well be remembered not so much for the content (although you NEED to hear it) but for Robbo's Rant. We ...

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
