Our special guest is Jason Sperling, Chief Creative Development for RPA, the ad agency responsible for the Happy Honda Days ad that featured the classic Voltron Matchbox die-cast toy, and included the original voices from Neil Ross, Michael Bell, BJ Ward and Jack Angel. After all that fun, Marc and Greg review the final 2 episodes of Season 7 of Voltron Legendary Defender, Lions' Pride Part 1 & 2.
Jason Sperling, Chief Creative Development for RPA, talks about how the Voltron Happy Honda Days ad came together, how the idea of using nostalgic toys to sell cars came to be, and what other things RPA has been involved with. One special thing that RPA is proud to be a part of, is the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, and they have been trying to help provide more resources for kids who have been diagnosed with brain tumors. RPA partnered with 23 animation studios, to create 23 different animated short films around each topic related to pediatric brain tumors. These short films are available in hospital networks around the world, in over 85 countries, and in 12 different languages.

As we talked about in the podcast, a special sequence that happened in the Lions' Pride Part 2 Episode from Season 7 of Voltron Legendary Defender was when Keith jumps out of Black Lion and slices Sendak with his bayard sword, defeating Sendak once and for all.
Here is a screenshot sequence of that scene, just as we promised:
