Eric Vale Talks about Stuff (a Q&A)

The Way Things Are (or The Truth About Voice Acting According to Eric Vale)
Have you ever asked a question and felt like you weren’t getting a straight answer? Ever wondered what it would be like to ask a voice actor a question if the veil of diplomacy and political correctness was lifted? Then bring it. Any question you want answered will be answered in a Q & A the likes of which you’ve never seen as Eric Vale speaks his mind in his usual brash and blunt fashion, without concern for societal norms or human feelings.
Eric Vale Is Not Himself (Q & A) 
Eric’s not feeling like himself today. He is, however, feeling like a lot of your other favorite voice actors. Want to have a Q & A with Todd Haberkorn or Christopher Sabat? Or maybe J. Michael Tatum? Then stop by and see who Eric is feeling like. Ask Eric questions as he does his best impressions of the actors he has gotten to know—much too well—over the years.
