Large sums of money has a way of overriding such concerns.
If you watch the first season of the Simpsons, Homer sounds very different. The reason Dan changed the voice is the current voice is much easier on his vocal cords than the old one was.
The Simpsons: Why Homer's Voice Changed After Season 1
Believe me, voice over artists aren’t going to do anything that jeopardizes their voice (aka their career). Julie Kavner wouldn’t be voicing Marge as she does if it was causing her harm.
Most of the programs I see on IMDB through Prime seem to have a purchase option. I'm hoping "New Bosch" will be like this; otherwise I will probably skip it, as I can't stand forced ads.
If Amazon was going to make it available (commercial-free) to Amazon Prime members, then why would they move it to IMDbTV?
To get original content on their lesser known streaming service which will boost subscribers.
I've always noticed the change and wonder if it were a different actor at first. Interesting.
This must just be one of the best gigs ever. You don't have to do hair/makeup and just voice, and then the show lasts decades. Just a great gig. Some of them also have done non-animated acting over these decades, as well.
That's why I thought Julie would do it too. I knew how different he sounded.
I think Julie's is more similar to how death metal vocals are, where it sounds like it would kill their vocals but it's a technique that doesn't. Or Brian Johnson from AC/DC, he speaks and he's a normal guy and then he sings and it's like holy crap, this guy's going to rip his vocal chords to shreds... but he's done it for 50 years.
Marge has sounded a little rough for the past couple of years compared to the beginning, but I chalk it up to age rather than vocal strain. Julie Kavner is 70.
June Foray was still voicing characters into her late 90’s, so 70 isn’t that old for a voice artist.
well, they all threatened to quit a few years ago.. so maybe not one of the best gigs ever!
IIRC, that dispute wasn't because it wasn't the best gig ever...it was because the studio was trying to make it less best. And the dispute ended when the studio backed down, leaving it still one of the best gigs ever.
This morning on NPR someone described the hats British guards wear as "Marge Simpson hats".

Okay, this was old news.
Anyway, I'm not happy.
On a related subject, Samberg has been really good in the classic SNLs I've been seeing. And I look forward to seeing the movie "Palm Springs" after all the awards show clips I've seen.
Palm Springs was really good. One of the streamers showed it when it came out for "free" (i.e. no additional fee).

It's on Hulu along with Nomadland.
I concur. I read a blurb which said Palm Springs was good and that people should watch it without reading any summaries, which is what I did. It's a somewhat well known trope, but I really enjoyed their take on it. I later showed to my family without telling them anything about it beforehand and they all enjoyed it as well.
This is true. It follows most of the RomCom tropes. Nothing wrong with that. As with any trope, if it's done well, I'll enjoy it.
Then offer it on your free service, with commercials, to people who aren't paying for your premium service and with out commercials on Prime. Trying to pad your subscription numbers by screwing over your existing paying customers make little sense.
