Yesterday I recorded the latest episode in the adventures of Helen Docherty, as she traverses the rocky road to antiquity. But instead of doing all the voices myself, I called in the help of a dear friend in Australia. Allana Noyes and I first met in 1997, in Brisbane, when we performed in a Trocadero production of “The Life and Death of King John” at Boggo Road Jail. Allana played Constance, and I was Queen Elinor. What a treat!
We’d stayed good pals over the years, and nowadays have weekly catchup calls over Zoom, since I’m in Liverpool, UK, and Allana is in Toowoomba—just outside of Brisbane, Qld, Australia.
I figured we could just as easily record our dialogue over Zoom, which saves the audio in separate files. That made it dead easy to edit, adding in sound FX etc. So that’s what we did.
The new episode is now up on Buzzsprout, you will find it here, or in your favourite podcasting software.
