Today, my guest is audiobook narrator, voice actor, and author, Jim Cooper. Jim shares his experience as a caregiver for his wife Sally during her battle with cancer. He discusses how he wrote a book on cancer caregiving and the impact it had on his wife and their relationship. Jim offers advice for those facing a cancer diagnosis and emphasizes the importance of finding support and taking care of oneself. He also reflects on the voiceover industry and the challenges faced by voice actors, particularly in the audiobook sector. In this conversation, Jim and I talk about the shift towards multi-person audiobooks and the need for narrators to adapt to this change. We also address the problem of accepting lower rates and the negative impact it has on the industry. This is our interview with the Big Dog, Jim Cooper. Takeaways
