Japanator AM 10: Dolphins and whales are assholes

10:00 PM on 03.25.2010 // Karen Mead

Technically, you could call this a political episode since we spend a fair amount of time talking about the whaling issue, however once you start discussing the possibility of receiving whale calls via Twitter, you probably lose the right to use important-sounding words like "political." You can listen to it here.

We've got the full cast this time around, and while it's one of those wild-and-crazy listener questions episodes, we discuss quite a lot of stuff. Also, Jtor AM now has a proper feed! Or at least a feed that works for me! Hit the jump for show notes and sundry.

Notes on notes:

If you're at all confused about the chronology, the reason why I mentioned that we had not had a post about the Twilight GN on Japanator was because we recorded this before I went and made one.

Also, here is the offending page to which Ben was referring:
