Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with voiceover actor and author Candi Milo about her memoir Surviving The Odd, her childhood in a halfway house, homelessness, mental illness, and alcoholism. 

Candi Milo is a successful actor, most famous for her extensive, award-nominated career voicing cartoons. Born in Palm Springs and raised in San Jose, California, Candi is an actor, singer, and comedian based in Los Angeles who is one of the busiest performers in voiceovers today and has starred in nightclub shows across the country.

She is honored to have taken the mantle from the legendary late June Foray as the voice of Granny for all of Warner Brothers Animation projects, including Space Jam 2: A New Legacy with LeBron James. She is an Annie Award nominee best known for voicing Deter in DEXTER’s Laboratory and The Flea in Mucah Lucha, among other well-known characters in hundreds of film and television projects, including Looney Tunes Cartoons. 

On stage, she starred alongside Jennifer Holiday in the first touring production of “Dreamgirls,” directed by Michael Bennett. Candi also gives inspirational talks about her unusual childhood and how it has informed her as a performer and mother. She is a passionate advocate for people dealing with mental illness and homelessness and the author of Surviving the Odd.
