I had the great opportunity to chat with Rob Paulsen about many topics. We first talk about fatherhood and how proud he is of his son. They recently started a show together called Game That Toon. You can hear the pride in Rob’s voice as he talks about his son. Speaking of his voice we talk about his fight against throat cancer. As someone who makes his living through his voice it was a very scary time for Rob. We also talk about his career and what he is most proud of in his career. We finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
