Singer Jason Paige, best known for being the voice behind the Pokémon theme song, joins the L.A. Weekly Weekly Podcast to talk about who really controls the franchise and how decisions are made regarding all things Pokémon.

Not a fan of eating something with a face, Jason shares his favorite spots in West Hollywood and sells Pokémon crawls to L.A. Weekly publisher Brian Calle and co-host Sara Tariq. Should L.A. Weekly host one in Santa Monica? 

Today’s show covers some of the most entertaining topics to date. Listen in to philosophize on when your birth really happens. Could it be inside your grandmother’s uterus? What? Jason’s theory is one you’ll just have to hear for yourself. 

Get your Google fingers ready as they try to figure out the name of a three-headed Pokémon. Which Pokémon would you be? Brian, Sara and Jason discuss who they identify with. They debate if Brian is truly a Pikachu. 

Did you know that our publisher is an avid Pokémon Go player? Honestly, who isn’t these days? If you aren’t, you’re missing out. However, if you are one of the billion that are trying to catch ‘em all you may want to pay attention to what our hosts have to say about Pokémon Go insurance.

Tune in to listen to the group discuss one of the most interesting and involved fandoms today and to find out the strangest inquiry Jason has had so far (spoiler: he’s becoming an ordained minister).
