SEGMENT EPISODE! Since the Oscars were last weekend we talked about Animation & the Oscars throughout history, we get an audience question about the 2D vs 3D “rivalry” and apparently Homer Simpson will be LIVE for the first time in an episode in May. This week is a fun combination of a segment episode and a hot cocoa show actually due to the return of a neglected segment… “slow burn!” We also have another Creator Spotlight on the mind behind the awesome Pencilmation series, Ross Bollinger. Enjoy this fun episode and one that has one of my favorite titles ever (you’ll find out why when you listen).
