ANNCast 066 - The Hebert Report

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 pla>yer here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:

NSFW Language Warning: Eh, not so much.
