The Voice Behind Episode 67 – Strike! Pt. 1

And now for something a little more serious. 

You may have seen or heard something recently about SAG-AFTRA’s recent (and ongoing) vote for strike authorization in response to negotiations surrounding video game voice actors. The union (which represents both on-screen and voice actors) provided a pretty thorough summary on their website, but we wanted to get a more in-depth perspective on the issue. With that in mind, this week we’ve got JB Blanc (union) and Fryda Wolff (non-union) to talk about what all is going on and why you may want to pay attention.

Part 1 deals primarily with the producers’ requests related to fines for “inattentive” actors, audition demands and the dreaded Cheryl. Part 2 can be found here.
