So, imagine my delight when I realized Rob Paulsen - the voice of Raphael from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pinky of Pinky and the Brain, and Yakko from Animaniacs and sooo many more - hosts a podcast all about voice acting! It's appropriately called Talkin' Toons. I've only started listening, but besides the fact that Paulsen is a funny, entertaining guy, he also interviews lots of awesome actors. I mean, he knows so many people in the field that it's just like listening to two pals talk, laugh, tell stories, and occasionally break into random characters. Guests include Mark Hamill, Tara Strong, Phil Lamarr, Bill Farmer, and on and on. He also has a bunch of solo shows talking about how he got into voice acting, etc.
Whether you're a long time fan of voice actors, just discovering what the phrase "voice actor" means, or interested in getting into the field: this podcast is for you. The show is available through Paulsen's site or on iTunes. Go download all of them now.
And there's more! If you live in Los Angeles, Paulsen hosts live shows at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. I'll definitely make it a point to check out one of those soon!
