Amazing Podcast and Person

Met Michael last week while he was doing a signing at Heros Hideout.

First of all just an amazing person. Everyone in line, he would have a genuine conversation with and honestly my signed Charmander pop is my new favorite pop lol.

I just finished listening to the 7th episode and I love how in-depth he goes about each episode. I never realized how involved he was with the making of the American adaptation of the show.

If you are a fan of Pokémon I definitely recommend checking this podcast out to get a great behind the scene look of the original anime.

I met him Saturday. This man has a big heart. Got my Snorlax and Psyduck card signed he did the voices and me smile. I started this podcast when I left and it’s a interesting insight on the show English.
