Virgil Von Hartzel is a member of the It's All Been Done Radio Hour troupe. He first guest starred in Show IV. Upon being cast in a major recurring role, along with playing several more guest spots, Virgil was added as an associate troupe member in April 2016. He was an 2017 Audio Verse Award Finalist for his work on the show.
Virgil was about to be offered full-time status in December 2016, but his move back to Arizona kept him from accepting. He still appeared in most 2017 shows, and became a full-time troupe member when the associate role was abolished at the end of 2017. He resigned from the troupe in December 2018 due to other professional commitments, but continues to appear periodically as a special guest star.
Ever since Virgil’s gaze fell upon the TV that fateful day, he fell in love. Characters like Bugs Bunny and Grunkle Stan increased his admiration for the voice and animation art form. This evolved to using the goofy voices created or acquired for the greater good of humanity. His journey began in Coolidge, AZ, took him to the University of Arizona (Bachelor’s in History, Minor in Geology and Archaeology), to Toledo, OH, where he worked for the largest student housing firm in the U.S., and finally back to Arizona, where he commutes from to appear in the show. His Twitter and Instagram username is @My_Ginger_Beard
Virgil's Meet the Cast was the eighteenth in the series, released as podcast episode 100.
