The News

Announcing a casting call from @bignutter. He’s looking for Bible Readers to do Genesis 1:1-10, Mark 16:15 & 1 Peter 4:10 all KJV, and also another unspecified quote. He’s accepting Male and Female readers. Certain Male voices are ideal, such as Fractured Horizon Promo Voice. Sorry nutter the our VOG (Voice of God) belongs to us! But we will spread the word.
