I think it's a nice podcast, but considering how he doesn't do much beyond sumarrizing the episodes and sharing a couple of tidbits, I think it'd be a neat idea to actually e-mail him with feedback, inquiries and whatnot like he's been asking ([email protected]). While listening, I get the feeling there's stuff he may know about, but not recall or regard as notable unless directly asked. Perhaps a byproduct of doing the podcast solo as well.

I personally don't "know the unknowns" of the English dub to think of many questions, but I do know the "no marchandise on-screen" rule he talks about in the 1st episode wouldn't actually come into play until the AG series. So if he's waiting until a paint edit happens to delve into the subject then it's going to take ages.

In the Kanto indigo plateau episodes, scenes with merchandise was edited. I want him to clarify if electric soldier Porygon was dubbed. Maddie and Eric say it was. You never know. Crazier things have happened. Japan banned an Ultraman episode about radiation but the international still dubbed it cause they had the episode on hand and aired it but then banned it again. Maybe a similar situation happened here?

I have sent Michael an email and he has replied, he's a very nice man I feel as I asked about him helping out with information for Bulbapedia

Hi, Joe!

Thanks so much for writing.

I love Bulbapedia! What a great resource. Of course, like almost any such site, there can be a few errors and omissions. I'm sure I'm making some of those on my podcast series, and I'm very careful to make that clear to listeners. I've only done podcasts on the first 6 episodes of Season 1 and, because I haven't listened to the shows I worked on since I worked on them nearly 25 years ago, I don't want to put out a definitive list of characters I voiced yet. And I'm sure some of what I claim will be disputed...because that's already happened! I'm doing my best to tell things the way I remember them, but my memories (and those of others connected with any series) aren't always accurate. So I'm happy to make a running list for you of the characters I voiced as I re-hear them. Would that be OK?

Anyway, thanks again for your interest and I'd always be happy to hear your thoughts, comments, criticisms, corrections, and suggestions for my series. Hope you stay in touch.

CHAR CHAR!
Mike Haigney

I wish the output would be a bit faster or that he would attend more conventions so I could ask him the questions about other dubs like Kirby, sonic, F-Zero GP Legend etc
