Jim Conroy

Jim ConroyThis week’s episode of TAG sports a shiny new host!  Dan Schachner takes the reins, showing Kieran the love he always wanted and announcing that each episode will now have a “theme” (Cue eye roll from Matty B).

Our guest this week is the incomparable JIM CONROY, who joins Dan to discuss this week’s theme of accents, what it’s like to be nominated for a Daytime Award, and why a prison commissary may not be the ideal place to launch a career in animation.
Also! A transatlantic battle for the title of sexiest British accent (probably NSFW but what do we know), a new weekly segment from the effervescent Katherine Heller and more surprises than you can shake a stick at.
