Thank you for this.
I’m actually trying to figure out a business model for a for-profit audio drama podcasting company, and that’s one thing I’ve been focused on. A lot of audio drama I’ve been involved in the past as a voice-actor, director or writer is strictly volunteer basis, but I think if you’re going to ask people to commit to recording characters for you, or editing that audio into an episode, you have to compensate them fairly for the time they spend. It’s only fair to them.
I hope things work out.
