• BONUS: Ken Reid Live at Denver Comic-Con

    Note: The Ken Reid TV Guidance Counselor Podcast is rated PG-13 and may contain mild language.

    I'm Ken Reid, a stand up comedian from Boston, MA and a life long television fan. I've been twice nominated as the Best Stand up in Boston and I have been featured on Comedy Central, NPR, Nerdist, and MSN. I own every issue of TV Guide. Each week a guest chooses an issue at random, picks their viewing choices from that week and the show is our discussion of the tough viewing choices of our past. We get into stories about growing up, people's relationship with television, some cultural/media studies dissection and I spit out a lot of trivia.

    This week...

    In this episode recorded LIVE! at the Denver Comic Con 2017, Ken welcomes casting director, voice director and animation legend Andrea Romano to the show.

    Ken and Andrea discuss The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, SCTV, Hanna Barbera, Daws Butler, The Jetsons, the "Tiffany" controversy with Jetsons: The Movie, the golden age of voice actors, Huckleberry Hound, how work you love can extend your life, the secret to casting voices, Frank Welker, Mel Blanc, the horrors of replacing actors, Al Yankovic gone evil, Ducktails, Animaniacs, growing up in a big family in the Hamptons, moving to California to escape Winter, Smurfs, Snorks, Orson Welles becoming The Brain, working with rappers on the Boondocks, the difficulty of directing actors to use the n-word, getting "name" actors into voice work, the golden age of streaming TV, and the fingerprint of people's "S sound", and why Kevin Conroy IS Batman.
