I wish there was more of a heads up about flyovers. You'd think they'd understand what it means to some people in NYC to hear insanely loud and close planes.

No matter what I write at my job, everything gets torn apart. The process goes like this: I write the piece, go through four rounds of intensive internal edits, and then a senior team member takes over and rewrites it.

The senior team members tell me I'm one of the strongest writers on the team. And my coworkers go through the same thing or worse with their writing. But at this point, I don't even see the point in trying anymore.

Is it like this at all agencies?

Does anyone have any insight into what voice over talent for broadcast costs for non-union talent?

I’m saying this because I care. If I were to go back in time, I would’ve gotten the vaccine. Please y’all get the covid vaccine. Months ago, those in my household got the vaccine and I did not due to fear to loosing a couple days of work and getting sick. A month ago, I got Covid and was hospitalized. I couldn’t breath - my oxygen level was 80. My fever was over 103. I was in so much pain. I couldn’t walk without the air tube and experienced other terrible symptoms. Covid also injured my back……
