Last week I was approached about narrating a DVD for a medical book. Seems the regular guy had a thing about saying medical terms the not-right way, forcing their hand. That's where I come in.
I used to be in radio. It's almost exactly the same as what I do now, which is proofreading medical text.
So you see.
Anyway, I've been doing it for six years and can pretty much pronounce medical words until I regurgitate and have to consult a gastroenterologist.
The moral of this story is, don't sit on your hands waiting for something cool to happen, because it will take about six years.
