Now – as you probably know, as well as the usual platforms (this site, soundcloud, iTunes/Apple) you can now get to Sweetman Podcast on Spotify – follow it there and have it saved in your Spotify library.
This episode is my conversation with Dryw McArthur.
Dryw is a voiceover artist and actor based in Wellington. Check out his website for samples of his work and rates. He works for international clients reading ad-copy, narrating audiobooks, doing anything you can do with a voice – or several voices in fact. He’s skilled at speaking in Kiwi, Australian, British and American accents.
He’s also an actor for the stage.
Last year I saw him in brilliant productions The Aliens and Burn Her. He was a key part of each production, perhaps most especially his role in The Aliens. I thought, straight away, that he was a huge talent. Someone I wanted to meet and speak to.
Flash forward a year and he’s part of the voice cast for brand new radio-drama/podcast, Apocalypse Songs (currently running, episodically via Radio Active and then the podcast-app) so it was a good time to get to meet Dryw and speak with him about all of this work and the way he does it (from his bedroom studio in his city-fringe flat).
We got into some great chats about theatre and voice work and I really enjoyed this conversation. As always my hope is that you do too.
Incidentally, Apocalypse Songs is from Red Scare Theatre company, so some helpful background there is my earlier conversation with company director and one of the creators of Apocalypse Songs, Cassandra Tse.
