Episode #026: An Interview with Courtenay Taylor (Amanda Holliday) and Cissy Jones (Sloane)

It all started with a voice crush…that led to a tweet…that led to voicemail…

…that led to this show, featuring not one but two voice talents from the Destiny universe.

And all Tee, Nick, and Brandon can do is hang on for dear life!

The Guardians welcome to the show Courtenay Taylor (Amanda Holliday) and Cissy Jones (Sloane). While it was expected that Courtenay was on the show, Courtenay arranged a little gift to celebrate The Dawning by inviting Cissy to join in the fun. The next forty minutes is a wild ride the likes of which no Guardian could prepare for. Enjoy this sit-down with Blonde Solo and the Titan on Titan, and leave us your feedback at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com. We’d love to hear from you!
