You done your shopping yet? Oh. I shouldn't ask? Ok. Sorry. I still need to get sommat for my mayannnnnn.
Today we do some Ha-ing, some pulling in of that diaphragmatic muscle...and o' course a wee look at some tongue twisters.....annnnd Fiona shares some wonderous advice about pre prep and mmmooooore!
Please find Fiona's own work here on her Dashing Onions website.
I also adore her character of Jane on A Scottish Podcast - NSFW 18+ audience - and it's always - I think - amusing to hear well spoken folks swear....the book summary she reveals in the book club episode made we lol SO MUCH. Listen to ASP here.
Fiona is also on EDICT ZERO which I think is FILLLLED with some brilliant voice actors so give it a go as it is EPIC and you will love it if you love EPIC. (Jack Kincaid is genius)
Listen here to Edict Zero.
