The Greatest Showrunners of ALL TIME join Marc and Greg on this podcast! Executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos and Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery spend some time with us to talk about Season 5 of Voltron Legendary Defender and what we can expect to see at Emerald City Comic Con, just before the highly anticipated release of Season 5 on Netflix. They also give us some insight on our Season 4 episode review for this podcast, The Voltron Show.
Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery are The Greatest Showrunners of ALL TIME because they've given the world a show that continues to exceed all of our expectations and it takes us on a ride we hope never stops. Every time we watch, we are amazed at the depth of these characters, and the breadth of how much is still left untold. They hit every emotion, several times over. And, that needlepoint picture above was made because Lauren requested it. Can everyone make that into a quilt and send it to Lauren, please, so they know how much we all love them? Send your Greatest Showrunners of ALL TIME needlepoint and/or quilt to:

Voltron was many things to many people before DreamWorks' Voltron Legendary Defender came to Netflix, but thanks to Joaquim and Lauren's passion and leadership, this collaboration of DreamWorks Animation and Studio Mir has become more than just a TV Show to people all over the world. It has become a symbol of hope that people everywhere CAN join together and overcome great obstacles to make our universe better for future generations.
We are honored to have Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery on this podcast, and we know if you're a fan of Voltron Legendary Defender, you'll be paying close attention to what happens at ECCC, just before Season 5 comes out on Netflix.

During this podcast, Marc talks about a die-cast Voltron figure made by Matchbox in 1985, which Greg gave Marc as a gift. Here is a picture of that terrific 6-inch Voltron:
In this podcast, Marc and Greg also review The Voltron Show, episode 4 from Season 4 of Voltron Legendary Defender. This is an amazing episode that is a real tour-de-force for voice actor, Rhys Darby, who plays Coran. He really shows us what makes him such a versatile actor. Coran goes through so much in this one episode, and we're laughing through most of it. If you're a fan of live stage performances, you'll enjoy all the references that make this a real gem of an episode.
Here are some screenshots from our review of The Voltron Show:
