Geektown Radio 216: Disney D23, Insomnia65, ‘Cobra Kai’ Stunt Coordinators Hiro Koda & Jahnel Curfman, TV News, Film News & UK Air Dates!

It is a bumper edition of the Geektown Radio podcast this week this podcast as we had some much to talk about! I’m joined by the lovely Bex Trista of TristaBytes, who also joined me in person this week at the Insomnia Gaming Festival in Birmingham, so we chat about our adventures there. Additionally, Disney held its massive D23 Expo, announcing a huge amount of Marvel tv and movie news. We also have a GTR first, as the D23 ‘Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker’ footage dropped as we were recording the show, so we watch and chat through the trailer together! If all that wasn’t enough, we have an exclusive interview with Emmy-nominated ‘Cobra Kai’ Stunt Coordinators Hiro Koda & Jahnel Curfman.

Couple Hiro Koda & Jahnel Curfman works together as stunt coordinators on the brilliant YouTube ‘Karate Kid’ sequel series ‘Cobra Kai’, which is coming back for Season 3 in 2020, and have previously worked together on HBO smash hit drama ‘Big Little Lies’. The duo are currently nominated for the Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Comedy Series Or Variety Program Emmy for their amazing work on ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 2.

Both working together and separately, the duo has an incredible list of projects under their collective belts. Hiro worked on shows such as ‘True Blood’, ‘Sons of Anarchy’, ‘The Last Ship’, ‘Ozark’ and ‘Supah Ninjas’, which won him his first Emmy. He also was Stunt Coordinator and Second Unit Director on the fantastic 3rd Season of ‘Stranger Things’.

Jahnel has worked ‘Avatar’, Netflix movie ‘Bird Box’, where she doubled for Sandra Bullock, ‘Bones’, where she doubled for Michaela Conlin, and ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ as double for Angie Harmon. More recently, she worked on ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’, where she doubles for Karen Gillan, and returned again this year for ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’.
