Friendship All-Stars


I celebrate 20 episodes by sitting down with the voice of Batman himself: Kevin Conroy. We discuss everything from how he stumbled into the role of a lifetime and channeled his inner darkness to hanging out with his neighborhood bartender, Bruce Willis. I also go behind the scenes of Mask of the Phantasm with writer Alan Burnett to talk about the genesis of the film and how it went from direct-to-video to last minute theatrical release. PLUS, comedy writer / director Alex Fernie (Hulu’s Hotwives, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) pops by to discuss the movie in detail and explore the logic behind things like using a saw-horse to escape the cops and whether or not the Joker is doinking a 1964 World’s Fair robot.
