Storytelling Breakdown is a podcast deep dive into how our favorite films, shows, books, games, and more reach us in all sorts of ways. From 106 miles to Chicago to the most famous Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in history. From the power and mischief of wizards and pixies, to making your audience feel like part of the crew as your adventurers travel at light speed. From the terrifying resonance of an eighty year old clown, to the entire life of Caesar, from the cutting edge animation of an entire Spider-Verse, to a card game from the late nineties that’s so Star Wars it hurts, and from the indelible mark of a one of comics’ most creative writers, to a museum dedicated to superheroes of all ages, Storytelling Breakdown is place where we can explore everything we love about the stories that make us who we are.

How Do You Make That Sound? Storytelling Breakdown

Storytelling Breakdown has now been around for a year! One topic that has always resonated with the Storytelling Breakdown team is voice acting, going all the way back to our first episode in September of 2020 when we highlighted Mark Hamil’s Joker. How do voice actors create such memorable performances so radically different from their own? What can be done to help these virtuosos of voice understand their instruments better? Dr. Colette Feehan is the first doctor to come on Storytelling Breakdown and voice acting is something of a *cue sassy Obi-Wan voice… speciality. We talked with Colette about her research at IU, the amazing connections she made at comic cons, and the final chapters of earning her doctorate. For the first time since our first two episodes, Caleb and Ben each did Spotlights for this one. They start at the 54:21 mark. Caleb explores some of his favorite aspects of Downton Abbey after a quarantine watch and Ben highlights an epic battle royale from Critical Role.Subscribe to Storytelling Breakdown wherever you get your podcasts.
