"Hi Gordene, Just wanted to ask you how you got your voice to sound so 100% female. At first I thought you were GG [genetic girl]! Myself, I have always thought that my voice always is a give-away or at the very least, a 'red flag'. If I could sound like you, my employment struggles would suddenly disappear. "

His partner, Andrea Dawn Verville, also shares with us about their internet radio program, Live 365's "Transgressions".
