Praise for Paul:

You are a teacher in every beautiful sense of the word. Your heart and humanity spill over into every lesson we had, and there were many, way beyond VO technique. Your patience and caring gave us the confidence to open up and dive in. There is no bigger gift than being given permission to be ourselves. Somehow "thank you" doesn't begin to cover it, but thank you!

Praise for Gordon:

Gordon Rothman skillfully guided my husband, James Fallows, and me through the recording of our book, Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America. He turned a famously arduous process (think of going to the dentist!) into one that was as delicate and pleasant as could be (think of taking the happy gas!).
