This is not a list I put together. This is a list that is compiled and pumped out on a website that we subscribe to that is known as “prep service” site, meaning that it helps you prepare for your show so you have something, anything, to say when you crack open a mic. In fact, some of your favorite radio shows are using scripted calls from voice actors that are available on these prep service sites. Nothing is real, everything is fake, sell all your belongings and go live on a mountain.
