Launched in August 2020 to celebrate The Hand That Feeds HQ’s 10th anniversary, SEIYUU LOUNGE is the 1st podcast focused on male seiyuu and the seiyuu industry itself.

SEIYUU LOUNGE arrives as a podcast in which not only you’ll go down memory lane and revisit some of the most powerful and important moments in the seiyuu industry and that your favorite seiyuu were a part of, but you also learn the behind the scenes of the industry.

This is a podcast that is welcoming to both veteran fans of seiyuu as well as newcomers and those that want to get into Japanese voice actors but don’t know where to start, what is fact and what is speculation, and what goes on behind the scenes.

The content crafted for SEIYUU LOUNGE is made in a clear and accessible way, even when it comes to talking about terms exclusive to music production and recordings.

Vanessa Silva, The Hand That Feeds HQ’s founder and content creator is your host, sharing her experience in the music industry and geeking about music production and recordings from time to time with you.
