Varied Voices

The 365 Days of Astronomy podcast - the official podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 - is continuing into 2010. The format remains the same with each episode contributed by different people from around the world. Although many people have signed up for days in 2010, there are still plenty available.

Throughout 2009 I created the Weekly version of the podcast which distilled every 7 days into an omnibus edition. At the end of each weekly episode I read out a standard blurb describing the podcast and how to get involved. To shake things up a bit for 2010 I thought it would be nice to have a series of different voices read the outro. I have around 10 voices so far but still need another 42 before the end of the year. The voices I have are heavily biased towards the UK and US so I'm particularly keen to get voices representing other countries.

You can get an idea of pronunciation by listening to this one by me or this one by Nancy. I just need the plain audio in as good a quality as you can. You won't get paid for doing this but you will get the satisfaction of having your voice on a 365 Days of Astronomy podcast.
