SHIRONANIGANS! It's all about Shiro and it was named by the fans! We have a great time with Josh Keaton, talking about the evolution of Shiro through 4 seasons of Voltron Legendary Defender on Netflix, and then Josh answers tons of questions submitted by the fans, and at the end, Josh picks our Shironanigans Prize Pack winner! SHIRONANIGANS! Josh Keaton, who has voiced Shiro, Sven, and Bi-Boh-Bi on Voltron Legendary Defender has joined us for a second time on Let's Voltron: The Official Voltron Podcast. And this time, it's to celebrate everything Shiro with a special podcast named by the fans, called SHIRONANIGANS! Like Allurapalooza!, we wanted to honor Shiro, and what better way than to have our fellow Voltron fans submit name suggestions for this special podcast. We received over 1000 suggestions, and we narrowed them down to 4. Then, in a special poll on Twitter and Facebook, we had fans vote between Shironanigans, The Shiro Show, SuperShiroCelebrationSpaceDadStravaganza, and Shiromania! Shironanigans! won the vote and two winners had chosen that name, Amy Rudberg and Riema Al-Khatib. Both of them are receiving Shironanigans Prize Packs, designed by the #1 Shiro fan herself, Zilla! (@beanyzilla) In this podcast, we had many fans that sent in questions for Josh Keaton. At the end of our discussion with Josh, he picks his favorite question, which reveals another winner of a special Shironanigans Prize Pack, that includes a Legendary Black Lion, Basic Black Lion, Die-Cast Black Lion, and Shiro action figure, all from Playmates Toys, and a special certificate of ownership for Black Lion, signed by Shiro and Josh Keaton. *Certificate of ownership is not real and not sanctioned by DreamWorks Animation or WEP. We want to congratulate Josh Keaton on reaching 50,000 followers on Twitter. If you would like to follow Space Dad, he's here: @joshkeaton We are fast-approaching the end of 2017, which means we only have 2 podcast episodes left. Our next podcast will be our salute to Voltron Cosplay, with our Voltron Cosplay Artist Spotlight, which includes 3 special guests, who have appeared at conventions in various Voltron character cosplay. Finally, our last podcast of the year will be our 4th Anniversary Show! That's right! Let's Voltron: The Official Voltron Podcast is now 4 years old, with 122 podcast episodes! We celebrate by bringing all of you on with us. Some sent in audio files, and some sent us notes that we'll read out to everyone. We may even have a couple extra fans on Skype with us! It will be a 4th Anniversary Celebration you don't want to miss! As always, Thanks for Listening! Let's Voltron!!

We are honored to present a Special Podcast focusing on the Father & Son relationship in Voltron Legendary Defender between Zarkon & Lotor, starring voice actors Neil Kaplan & AJ LoCascio. You'll love the banter between Neil and AJ as they play off each other in a heavily comedic and whimsical way.

Also in this podcast, we interview Oscar Edmond, who attended the opening of the Toy De Jour Official Voltron Art Show in Chicago on October 20th. Neil Kaplan (Zarkon) and AJ LoCascio (Lotor) are two great voice actors who are amazing by themselves, but put them together on a podcast and you're going to experience the ultimate entertainment, as the hilarity ensues. We take a special look at the Father-Son relationship in Season 4 of Voltron Legendary Defender, and we see what's going on inside the heads of Neil and AJ. Look out! For those of you that sent in questions for this podcast, we thank you! One of you is announced as the winner of 2 signed lithographs, featured on the podcast page of our last podcast. We're sorry we couldn't announce the names of all the people who sent in questions this time, as there were literally hundreds of you.

Marc and Kim Morrell covered all the Voltron events at New York Comic Con 2017 (NYCC), including the Voltron Legendary Defender Pre-Panel with Mark Daniel, the Panel, interviews with the cast and producers, Voltron on the LIVE stage, and the signings and Voltron fan meetup. There were also exhibit hall booths we visited, like Han Cholo, Lion Forge, and Simon & Schuster, as well as artists on the show floor and artist alley. In this podcast, we share it all with Greg, who wasn't able to go, and all the Voltron fans around the world that couldn't make it to NYCC. There is a lot to cover at New York Comic Con, especially when it comes to Voltron Legendary Defender, the greatest show on Netflix, and any device anywhere! And it all started with the Voltron Legendary Defender Cast and Crew Autograph Signings at Table 21 of the Autograph Hall on Friday, Oct 6, 2017. This wonderful lithograph designed by Lauren Montgomery was signed for every Voltron Fan in line. Here's what we had signed, and some of those pictures: On Saturday, Voltron Fans lined up to get into the panel early, and we saw some great cosplay in line. Here are some of those pics: Then, people were allowed to enter the Main Stage at NYCC, and take their seats for the 11 AM Voltron Legendary Defender Season 4 Panel. Mark Daniel was the Master of Ceremonies for the Pre-Panel Show and he was absolutely great with all the Voltron fans. He brought all the people up to the front who had cosplayed as Voltron characters, and they proceeded to do the first ever LIONWALK at NYCC. Then, he asked Let's Voltron Podcast Host Marc Morrell to come up on stage and they talked all about Season 4, Voltron Merch at NYCC and elsewhere, and they plugged the podcast. Both of them were wearing their Let's Voltron Podcast Five to Thrive Shirts, designed by Zilla (@beanyzilla). Big Thanks to Mark Daniel for all the Let's Voltron LOVE! Here are some pics from that Pre-Panel Show: We made a video of the Pre-Panel Show for people who weren't able to see that from the LIVE Collider YouTube stream from the panel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjGEB5IcOio Now, the panel did not disappoint Voltron fans, who were looking for glimpses into Season 4, as there were several clips from Season 4 played for the audience during the panel. Here are some of the pics from the panel: After the panel, we had interviews with the cast and producers of Voltron Legendary Defender. Those interviews are available on our YouTube Channel at: Cast (AJ LoCascio, Josh Keaton and Kimberly Brooks) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6YALGzYu4A Producers (Joaquim Dos Santos & Lauren Montgomery) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABlLw2w_lEk Here are some great pics from all around the exhibit hall floor, artist alley and more: We also had a chance to greet other great Voltron fans at the Voltron fan meetup at 4 PM on Saturday, which was a blast, and included a LOT of group cosplay photos, including these: We want to thank ALL of the Voltron fans that we met at NYCC. Your passion for this awesome franchise is OFF THE CHARTS! We also want to thank DreamWorks, Netflix, Universal, Mark Daniel, Han Cholo, Lion Forge, Simon & Schuster, Sideshow Collectibles, Alex Milne, Terry Huddleston, Naomi Romero, Elentori, Donya Abramo, Cheetoy, Mark Oliver, Seth Green, Clare Grant, Brandon Schoolhouse, Gian Norte, Josh Keaton, Kimberly Brooks, AJ LoCascio, Joaquim Dos Santos, Lauren Montgomery, Seth Fowler, Ryan Bradley, Emily Leibert, ReedPop Staff, BER, Warner Bros, Gary Miereanu, DC, Alan Tudyk, and many more people we can't remember at this moment. NYCC was awesome! We can't wait until next year, and the next time we get to gather with Voltron Fans! It's always a great time! We also talked about our TeePublic Store, where you can find a ton more Voltron designs, and TeePublic recently added pillows, totes and tapestries to their already long list of products that you can get Let's Voltron or Voltron designs on. Here is a link to that store: https://www.teepublic.com/user/letsvoltron?ref_id=5313&ref_type=aff Our next podcast will have special guests AJ LoCascio (Lotor) and Neil Kaplan (Zarkon) in a Father and Son Podcast for the AGES! Lotor vs Zarkon! Let's see if these two can get along and answer all the fan questions we asked you to send into us. There will be a random winner picked from all the entries, and that winner will receive the 2 signed lithographs we mentioned above. Good luck! As always, Thanks for Listening! Let's Voltron!!
