Episode 76 - An Evening with Cole Howard


From currently unlicensed Bandai Entertainment dubs from the mid-2000s, to My Little Pony to Dragon Prine and Zoids WILD, Cole Howard has spent years mastering the intricate art behind voice acting wide-eyed teenage protagonists. Evidently, it's worked out rather well for him. Cole joins us to talk about his work on titles like Mai-HiME and Law of Ueki in Alberta, what brought him to Vancouver, and the psychological (if not logistical) challenges that COVID-19 has brought to the voice acting field.

Episode 75 - If the Women Don't Find You Handsome...


Karl and I cautiously enter the unpredictable realm of 2021 by lamenting the lack of a theatrical review episode this year (sorry Randy!), but celebrate the two big nominations for Vancouver animator and former Zannen, Canada guest Genice Chan in Crunchyroll's Anime Awards - a distinction that probably holds more weight than the actual award winners. We do a bit of a deep dive into the currently tabled (but little discussed) proposed streaming regulations and whether or not Sony's upcoming amalgamation of Funimation of Crunchyroll may be big enough to get the attention of Canadian watchdogs. We also talk about that infernal No Frills ad and how terrible Loblaws actually is and give a brief overview of what new shows we've been watching this season.
