Vox Populi: Voice of the ‘Occasionally Interested’ People

seanastinbanner

In our geek loving community, we know (and love!) Sean Astin for his portrayal of Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy — or if we go more ‘old school’, we know him as Mikey from The Goonies! Sean is now rallying for our support for his online radio show, Vox Populi, where he hosts a forum for open discussion on politics, government and world events. His show welcomes every view point and encourages growth and learning as a community. Now, he is taking the show on the next phase with a Kickstarter campaign and he wants to reach his second goal within a few days to bring more content for the show.

Check out our interview with him below!

They spoke to us about what inspired the idea and the characters, plus what it took to get this project off the floor. Still, they need your help so please check out their Kickstarter page and donate or help spread the word!

Stephanie Sheh is most well known and well-loved for her voice acting work in anime, video games and animation. This time, she is calling to all of her own fans to support a new project she is producing, Hollow Ship, and you can find out how to contribute on the Kickstarter page. The show is a comedy that will take place in a science fiction setting — with a ship (hollow deck included) and a crew (who may or may not be getting along too well with each other). Stephanie is very passionate about this project and I agree with her that this show is something all of you geeks should be interested in too.

It seems like the perfect vacation until an unknown assailant starts to terrorize the group and brutally pick them off one by one, turning the trip into a bloody nightmare.
