In our newest installment of MTR: Behind The Mic I will be speaking with Phil Osyfee of the Community Voice Podcast. I have had the pleasure of being on Phil's show awhile back but didn't get an opportunity to speak to him. We learned more about CVP and what Phil's aspirations are for the CVP product. We also did a breakdown of E3 that I am sure many of you will enjoy.
You can learn more about CVP by visiting CommunityVoicePodcast.Podbean.com
CVP also has forums on FrontTowardsGamer.com
MTR would like to thank Phil for stepping out from Behind The Mic

I have always said that the inspiration to get into podcasting came from two different sources. The first being VGN who introduced me to the podcasting medium and the second the team from Opie & Anthony. In listening to O&A for so long I was introduced to many comedians that were never on my radar. Talented comics like Jim Norton, Patrice O’Neal and this weeks guest Robert Kelly. Bobby is an O&A regular but is a lot more than just a comic. Bob has done film, TV and even video game voice work (GTA). In hearing Bob’s many appearances on O&A I learned that he was a gamer and also an MMA fan. After a few weeks of harassing Bob on twitter I got the opportunity to interview him for our 94th show. Bob was as awesome with us as he is with O&A and that was refreshing. He toughed it out through some technical difficulties and gave us nearly two hours of kick ass comedy and uncensored views on things like MMA, video games and the nuances of stand up comedy. MTR thanks Bob for coming on and hanging with us.

This episode was quite possibly one of the best interviews I’ve had the pleasure of conducting. Honestly I love all my interviews but the passion exhibited in this interview made it standout all its own. Every week I broadcast MTR I usually have to share my displeasure with the current state of wrestling. A few weeks back I noticed one individual challenged wrestling fans to do something besides bitch. His passion for change gave way to The Wrestling Revolution which has the potential to change the game and make fans love pro wrestling once again.
Jeff Katz is the brains behind the Wrestling Revolution project and was also my guest for our 93rd episode. Jeff has a very impressive resume that crosses multiple genres. In speaking with Jeff I really felt challenged to make a difference not only as a fan but as someone who shares his views about the wrestling product on a broadcast platform.

For our 92nd episode I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the most interesting personalities I have met from the gaming journalism community. Gerard Williams aka Hip Hop Gamer is the personification of a larger than life persona being the driving force in his ascension to the top of the gaming journalism community. During his time on the show we discussed a broad range of topics from his work with Sony to his hardships in being taken seriously as a journalist. I was one hundred percent honest when I said that I was expecting a sideshow attraction before I met him at the DualShockers Game Day. Upon meeting Gerard I came to realize that his passion for gaming and his persona are tailor-made for this type of work.He is professional, eloquent and above all else hungry to be a player in the video game community. For those of you that shy away from this talented individual due to his hip hop persona need to look at his body of work and also speak to him to see that there is more to Gerard than just being Hip Hop Gamer.
