One of the guys who started at the ground floor of Wizard Magazine, Doug was a genuine delight to speak with. This podcast tracks his incredible rise to a contributor to the mainstream geek culture. From someone just helping out doing various work at one of the founding contributors to geek-culture, to becoming an Emmy Award-winner. While Doug himself doesn’t think his journey is inspiring, there is definitely is a lot that could inspire many others in similar fields.
How I Made Doug Drop All Kinds Of Names, Reluctantly
During the Douglas Goldstein interview podcast, we cover a lot. Everything from how Doug became involved in the amazing superhero and geek parody and spoof show Robot Chicken, to winning awards. Not to mention rubbing shoulders with the who’s who of all the major fandoms. I trick Doug into telling stories from his past. Doug recalls his meetings involving some major creators, filmmakers, and basically legends that he’s met that influenced his works.
After winning countless accolades, Doug created his own brand new animated adult series in Devil May Care. I was very impressed with the tone and absolute craziness of that new show. Not to mention the amazing voice cast that Doug got together. In this episode, we also discuss how the show came together, along with the impressive cast. Not to mention planning ahead to where Doug’s legend-in-the-making career will take him next. My takeaway from the entire show is just how humble Douglas Goldstein is. And this is despite his history with fandom and creating geek content for decades now, and being an award-winning creator.
