THanks for this great podcast. As this will be my final year of high school, I am looking into some kind of job related to support. This just gives me another option. I think I would just train mainstream instead of targeting specifically for VO users. Thanks for this. I hope it will help me at some point. It sounds like a very good investment when compared to other solutions like insanely expensive colleges/trade schools etc.
