#71 - Interview with Linda Young (Voice of Frieza in Dragon Ball Z)

June 2, 2019

Last weekend, at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Sully got the chance to sit down with voice actor Linda Young, most famous for her iconic portrayal of the evil Frieza in the first Funimation dub of Dragon Ball Z!

Besides Frieza, Linda has a long history of acting and voice work, from stage and commercials, to other anime roles. Notably she can be heard as Genkai in the dub of Yu Yu Hakusho, and the land lady in Double Decker.

Huge thanks to Linda for coming on the show, and to Animazement for making this possible!

#70 - Interview with Robert Woodhead (Founder and CEO of AnimEigo)

May 29, 2019

Last weekend at Animazement in Raleigh, NC, Bill and I had the pleasure of having Robert Woodhead on the show. Robert is the Founder and CEO of Wilmington, NC's AnimEigo, one of the oldest anime licensing companies in North America. Anime fans these days would know them best for their highly successful Kickstarter campaigns to re-release titles such as Bubblegum Crisis, Otaku no Video, Riding Bean, and most recently, Gunsmith Cats

Huge thanks to Robert for coming on the show! And thanks to Animazement for making this possible. 

Note: Please pardon the audio quality on this episode. It was recorded with a phone on the convention floor, but it sounds better than you'd think?
