Wesley Marshall and Jasmin Turner Evans joins us for our first guest podcast in 2014! Wesley and Jasmin are both voice actors in the making and they are currently taking classes to pursue a career in voice acting in animation. They talk about the VA community today and what it takes to step into the industry. Also, silly voices included.
In this week’s episode, Gizzy B confesses her short but tumultuous relationship with Candy Crush Saga. The Lady Geeks also discuss the ‘boys’ club’ of the comic book industry and video game industry — all while trying to figure out how to win Batman’s heart. Fanfic Theater: Attack on Titan x FREE!
The Lady Geeks discuss a recent article which talks about a panel that took place in Hall H at San Diego Comic-con this year called ‘Women Who Kicks Ass’ as presented by Entertainment Weekly. The writer had revealed that the panelists — such as Katee Sackhoff and Michelle Rodriguez — confronted the audience about sexism and gender inequality in the industry. The reaction from a room full of mostly men was interesting.
This weekend at Wondercon, actress and all around lady-of-all-trades, Leah Cevoli is moderating a panel called All Shapes and Sizes Welcome, discussing the female body image and women’s issues in the industry. The Lady Geeks also open up about their own personal experiences from struggling with weight gain to skinny-shaming to finding self-love. We also get into discussions about cats (again), our dream bubble-baths, Jesus and talking cheeseburgers. If you’ll be at Wondercon, we hope to see you at Leah’s panel on Saturday!
We spoke to casting director, Stephanie Gorin and actress, Naomi Snieckus who both star in their own award winning — and hilarious! — web series called The Casting Room. Listen in as we discuss what it’s like to be in a real casting room, the funny things actors would do in auditions and what it takes to make a web series successful.
