AoY Podcast #50 – Lisle Wilkerson Interview

Also known as: “DOOOORIIIIEEEMOOOOOON!!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 59:06)

The day has finally come, where we make our 50th Podcast episode. And what better way than to do a recorded interview with a video game voice actress like Lisle Wilkerson. You wanna know something else, this was recorded 3 months ago at the end of May, and we still have a back log of recordings. At least it shows that we will not run out of content anytime soon…

(0:00 – 59:06) Interview: Lisle Wilkerson – We are humbly joined by the voice talent behind the recent voices of Christie Monteiro and Sarah Bryant in the most recent games of Tekken and Virtua Fighter (oh yea, don’t forget about Shenmue 2 now). Of course, to anyone who plays those games, it’s hard to focus on the voice behind the 3D model that is countering your attack for the tenth time in a ranked match (remember Joy in Shenmue 2? Yea, DON’T FORGET ABOUT SHENMUE 2). We of course ask Ms. Wilkerson questions on how she was able to get her foot into the door of video game voice acting, what is the voice acting world like currently,  what it was like growing up in Japan, working with Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, chatting about her works in video games (like Crazy Taxi and OF COURSE SHENMUE 2!!), being in fixed boxing matches, the current life of Calf., her upcoming (really past) con schedule for this year, and old school anime talk. All this and more in this episode…

The terms Lisle used in this interview for the Japanese language inclined:
Hafu (ハーフ)
Kikokushijo  (帰国子女)

Anime titles that are fond of Lisle and that we even mentioned to her:
Candy Candy
Attack Number 1
Aim for the Ace
Doreamon
Hello Kitty
Gunbuster
Space Adventure Cobra
Ashita no Joe

Music Selection:

OP – I am just making sure… no one forgets about Shenmue 2

ED – Bring this song back when Crazy Taxi 3 ever gets made…

    • She has been hitting the Con scene since shes been back, so chances are she might come to MTAC eventually. I think the guys who run One Pixel Jump still go to that con every year, I need to see how there doing, its been like 2 years since we had them on a podcast, and that was our other podcast.
