Podcast / Talkin Toons With Rob Paulsen


Talkin' Toons with Rob Paulsen is a podcast where veteran voice actor and singer, Rob Paulsen, talks about cartoons. For about an hour (give or take 30 minutes), Paulsen will speak about his experiences as a voice actor throughout the years and field questions and other comments from fans and those interested in becoming a voice actor themselves. Often times, Paulsen will also have a guest to join the show including creators and writers for cartoons, impressionists, musicians, comedians, voice directors and other actors and voice actors.

Talkin' Toons is part of the Tech Jives Network for the podcast and as of February 27, 2013 the show is a videocast on Ustream. Also beginning with the videocast era episodes, Rob and his guest(s) are accompanied by Abi Collins who serves as the show's moderator and her husband James Cluster oversees show production. From June until October of 2013, the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, where all the previous Live Specials took place served as the setting for the podcast. Currently, Talkin' Toons takes place at The Improv comedy club in LA every other Tuesday.
