Episode 18: Cross-Dressing Voices In Cartoons (w/ guest host Katie G)

4th in our series of guest hosts is Katie G, here to discuss the trope of cartoon characters voiced by actors the opposite of the characters’ main gender, a.k.a. cross-dress voice acting, specifically in iconic cartoons from the 90’s up til now, even more specifically a lot about Tina from BOB’S BURGERS. Also, we play a possibly delightful voiceover game (V.O.O.O.C. – Voice Over Out Of Context) and tangentialize on Bart Simpson, Yellow Dancer of ROBOTECH, VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER, and also the eternal search for meaning!

Chris returns soon!

Episode 17: HULK AS PUNY CULTURAL PHENOMENON

Our Guest Host today (Chris is still shooting a feature film) is Greg Pak, writer, filmmaker, and preeminent scribe of Marvel’s THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We discuss the Hulk’s relevance as a symbol of repressed/channeled rage and strength, with insider insights from Greg’s work as a creator of the PLANET HULK/WORLD WAR HULK storylines, Amadeus Cho (the current, Asian-American Hulk) and also tidbits about Greg’s work on the John Carpenter mash-up comics series and his creator-owned work. Enjoy, and SMASH.

Dom on Greg’s Asian-American super-team-up storyline in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK, for YOMYOMF.

Dom’s review of Greg’s creator-owned dream project, KINGSWAY WEST.
