• Exclusive Season 2 audio interview with Jayson Thiessen


    Ponies, please listen to the audio interview in this post. In it, Jayson Thiessen - supervising director and current showrunner of Friendship is Magic - speaks for 72 minutes to Equestria Daily about the upcoming Season 2. And it is glorious. All of it. Phoe and I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing him, but the stage is assuredly all his. After the break: Beauty.

    Below, everypony will find an official press release and Season 2 screenshot (seen before) straight from The Hub, followed by a link to the Jayson Thiessen audio interview with Tekaramity and Phoe, both of Equestria Daily. That would be this site right here. In this interview, Jayson discusses all sorts of topics ranging from the beginning of Season 1 to the conclusion of Season 2 - and beyond. Most of his focus, though, is notably about Season 2.

    First, thanks to every single awesome pony at The Hub and Hasbro for making this happen. *brohooves to you*

    Second, thanks to Phoe for being the most awesome co-interviewer a Tek could ever want! Love you, dear friend. ^_^ *hugs forever*

    Finally, thanks most of all to Jayson for being the most awesome interviewee known to man or pony! Please do stay 100% awesome. All of my gratitude and respect - take it.
