HTP Episode 157 – Mary Jo Pehl

Mary Jo Pehl is a seasoned writer and performer on both Rifftrax and seasons 4-10 of Mystery Science Theater 3000. She joins me today to talk about her book Dumb Dumb Dumb: My Mother’s Book Reviews (also available on her website and Amazon). We start off with the difficult process of resolving grief and the sometimes necessity to do so with a bit of humor, and this rolls into a discussion of the mechanics of riffing… and some speculation about educational shorts in particular.

A lot of research is going to come from this discussion. At one point, I mention a quote from Bill Gates discussing what computers can’t do to save the world.

In addition to producing Rifftrax, Mary Jo hosts The Mary Jo Pehl Show and Movie Jo Night courtesy of Dumb Industries.

You can follow Mary Jo on her official website.

HTP Episode 156 – Katie Leigh

Katie Leigh is a voice actress known for work on Darkwing Duck, The Real Ghostbusters, Gummi Bears, and Adventures in Odyssey…. And I get to fanboy out a little over her performance as Young Han Solo in Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace. She comes to Hungry Trilobyte to put a little perspective on the differences between voice acting in the 80s and today, and how fan convention culture has brought creators and the audience together into a community.

Be sure to check out Katie’s full list of work at IMDb. You can follow Katie on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, as well as her official website. Be sure to check out her webseries Tell Ya Later.
