So, once again, the talented and hard-working Hulie Joverson has used Big and Rish to voice characters on her podcast, 19 Nocturne Boulevard. This particular episode is entitled The Naked Truth. Julie writes at least one audio drama a month, and as far as I know, she edits them, mixes them, foleys them, and acts in them herself.
In "Naked Truth," Big voices a thug and Rish voices a movie producer, both in the olde tyme Film Noir style. Ish.
Recently, she also had us do voices on her Western audio drama, "The Deadeye Kid: Auld Lang Syne." We got to play the parts of villagers and also a couple of bandits. Amusingly, her directions told us to play one of the bandits as "vaguely Mexican." I had no idea how to play that, and I still don't. I can understand being "vaguely sleazy" or "vaguely drunk" or even "vaguely foreign," but I couldn't get my head around the Mexican thing. It would be like playing a character "vaguely white."
I never took the Kobayashi Maru Test. What do you think of my solution?
