Vic Mignogna and Missing Stairs (Episode 140)

Vic Mignogna, one of the biggest names in Anime Voice Acting, has recently had numerous allegations of sexual harassment leveled at him. Companies are dropping him, conventions are cancelling his appearances, and most people don’t want anything to do with him. But here’s the thing — none of us are surprised.

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we’re spending the episode talking about Mignogna’s long standing reputation in the Anime Convention Community, Missing Stairs, and how someone like Mignogna can spend so many years in a community without anyone stopping him.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also writes and draws the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
