Podcast Recommendations

Drawn: The Story of Animation: This was a limited series that ran in 2018 and produced by Holly Frey for Cartoon Network. It’s a great overview of some really fun topics within animation. For example, there’s an episode all about sound effects, voice actors, and one about Bugs Bunny.

Simply Robotix Podcast: Hosted by Monique Henry-Hudson, who runs the site of the same name, as well as a co-founder of DiverseToons, I love this podcast because it’s about whatever she wants in animation. There are your film reviews and discussions, and I always love hearing her take on movies, interviews, and general topics about the work she does and events she attends.

Black N Animated: Hosted by Breana Williams and Waymond Singleton, this podcast highlights Black artists, management, technicians, voice actors, etc.–just people across the board in animation. They also talk about shows and films featuring Black leads. So the range of topics and stories and career paths is really wide, making this an fantastic resource for anyone.

You Must Remember This: Admittedly this one is more of a hit or miss for me regarding subject matter since I haven’t seen a lot of the films mentioned. This podcast by Karina Longworth highlights the forgotten history of Hollywood’ first 100 years. So, almost entirely live-action focused.
