For this milestone episode, we are thrilled to present some short conversations with several of the top creatives in the family-friendly audio drama industry; writers, composers, actors, directors, and sound designers. J.D. chats with each of them about why they love working in audio drama and then asks some fun questions to get to know these talented folks. In addition to this industry guest spectacular, J.D. is also joined on the show by nearly all of the current team of ATC contributors; Austin Peachey, Michael Schroeder, Robert Thacker, and Christopher Green to talk about how they first found ATC and got involved with the show and blog. We also get to hear some great voicemails from several members of the ATC family and J.D. kicks off the show with a special edition of Here's What I'm Thinking in which he shares some fun ATC stats and facts. Join us for all the fun in the 200th episode of Audio Theatre Central!
