Josh Keaton, who plays Shiro on Voltron Legendary Defender, and is an amazing actor, returns to the podcast for a unique one-on-one interview. Find out where Josh will be making his next Con appearance, what he thinks about Shiro's development through the end of Season 7, and whether there will be a sequel to his hit YouTube Music Video, "You're Welcome". Also, our RetroVoltron segment is all about Commander Hawkins, the OG equivalent of Captain Shiro.
Josh Keaton is Shiro's #1 Fan. If you dare, you can challenge this statement, but since Josh had at least a 1-year jump on anyone else for getting to know this character intimately, and even brought this character to life, with the help of a great animation team, and continues to be Shiro's greatest Champion, you should be happy with sharing #2 with multitudes of other Voltron fans.
We are so happy to present this unique one-on-one interview with Josh Keaton. You may notice at one point, about 3.5 doboshes in, that Josh's audio sounds different for the rest of the interview. Josh switched to a different iPad on Skype that was newer so the connection would remain consistent. We hope you understand. Thanks!
For our RetroVoltron segment, Greg reviews what we believe is the OG equivalent of Captain Shiro, and that would be the Captain of the Explorer from the Vehicle Team episodes of Voltron: Defender of the Universe, Commander Hawkins.
Greg not only gives you the Voltron side of Hawkins, but also the Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (original Japanese show) version, and how it compared to Voltron.
Here are some screenshots of Commander Hawkins:
