ANNCast Episode 048 - OverCooked
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Welp this has been a pretty terrible week and you might notice a slight downward shift in the tone at the very top of the show! We're really depressed about the passing of Satoshi Kon, and so we talk about that for like 8 minutes and then get right to the interview. Can you blame us?
Our guest is Justin Cook, who is basically in charge of everything related to Funimation's English language dubs, and he's got plenty to talk about! We go over his routine, all the myriad hats he wears during dub production, and eventually get into the dubs themselves, specifically all the changes made to their comedy scripts. Then it's Twitter time!
You can listen to the show on our pla>yer here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:
Also: if you like the show (or don't like the show, I guess) be sure to write us up a review over on iTunes! It'd be a big help!
NSFW Language Warning: The grief-stricken cursing of a sad sailor.
