Get the Flash Player to see this player.
It's another one of those weeks where there isn't much news, so instead of prattling on, I get straight to the interview with voice actor and candid dude Kyle Hebert. Kyle lets us peek behind the scenes a bit at what the lifestyle of a freelance voice actor is, how he interacts with his fans, convention work, and the hurdles involved in living on the west coast and commuting to Texas for work.
A quick warning: around the 17-minute mark the audio starts getting a little janky due to some Skype issues, but we clear it up around the 23-minute mark. Apologies for the inconvenience.
You can listen to the show on our player 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: Eh, not so much.
