Go to https://www.thepharmacistsvoice.com/podcast/ and scroll through my back catalog for all 100 episodes.
Some episodes have come about because of listener questions. Two recent examples are Episode 99, my Interview with Rhonda Phillips about “How does someone get started in voiceover?” and Episode 97, my Interview with Maureen Garrity, NABP Competency Assessment Director, on how a foreign pharmacy graduate can become a US pharmacist. Providing valuable content to my audience and growing my network of professional connections is important to me. If you have an idea for a show or want to suggest I interview someone, I’m all ears.

I’m thinking about making changes, but I don’t have anything specific planned. I want to consider listener feedback before I make any decisions. That’s why I’m asking you to fill out a survey.
Podcast consultants Dave Jackson and Erik K. Johnson will be reviewing The Pharmacist’s Voice Podcast on their Podcast Review Show this month. You can find it at podcastreviewshow.com.
