Recorded before a live audience at Sonic-Con 2021, today's episode is a fun one! ADA member Josh Rodriguez co-hosts with JD and we are joined by three guests. We interview actor Nato Jacobson and talk about how he started working in the audio drama industry, some of his favorite roles, and how voice acting is different from screen acting. We also talk with Alicia Hansen and Jonathan Cooke from Eternal Future Productions about the genesis of their show Pirateers, their plans for the future, and how to get started producing a serial audio drama. We also share a newscast, some tidbits, and Nato and Jonathan do some demonstrations of how they approach voicing characters.
