Flipping Tables with Kal-Elle Jagger: The Andy Last Interview

Updated: Dec 2, 2021

Welcome to my little corner in the metaverse, just west of Pop Art Ave and Lois Lane, where we flip the script, turning the table on the personalities who usually find themselves at the forefront of a Q&A.

As my first guest at the neon table, I am honored to have none other than Andy Last.

Since 2013, Andy has been synonymous with his podcast, and subsequent YouTube show Beyond Synth.

A jester rebel (with a cause) in a 007 suit. Andy Last is a man with an infectious cackle that could light up a smile on The Grinch.

His face might be familiar, and his laugh instantly recognizable, but who is Andy Last?


For those unfamiliar with your origin story, where was Andy born and raised?


I was born and raised in a small town in Canada, just a few hours drive from Toronto.

Although, I did spend almost a total of 2 full school years travelling the world with my parents.

So, even though I grew up in a small town, I never really absorbed the “small-town attitude.“

And by that, I just mean that I never grew up interested in what my neighbors were up to or learning everyone in town's name.

In hindsight, I regret that now when people know who I am and I don't know their names.

But names are hard to remember.


What was your favorite action figure as a kid or favorite superhero?


My favourite superhero when I was a kid was Batman. And it still is Batman when I think about it, although Spider-man is a close second.

I didn’t play much with action figures when I was young and mostly just played with Lego.

When I was a little older, I think my first action figure sets that were bought specifically for me (not hand-me-downs) were the Beetlejuice toys made by Kenner.

After that, I played a lot with the toys for Batman Returns. So, I guess I played a lot with toy versions of Michael Keaton.
