Jtor AM 13: Back and Dandy


History in a meat grinder; The Oda Nobunaga Awards are coming

After a refreshing holiday break, the Jtor AM podcast is back for a new cour-- and you can tell it's all-new, since Tim and Ben are arguing about the animation quality in Space Dandy instead of Kill La Kill. This week's slate of important topics includes the looming specter of a new season of Sword Art Online, the definition of God in Kyousogiga (and how neither Sal nor Karen are either individually smart enough to understand that show, nor can they understand it together), and the baffling mystery of how Nobunaga the Fool can be so ridiculous yet so ungodly boring at the same time. We also indulge in our weekly "Just how *&#$-in' crazy is that Kaga Koko?" debate, but come on-- you knew that already.

Since this will be Sal's last episode with us (at least for a while), we considered just berating him about leaving for the full hour or so, but after about five minutes of screaming, rending our garments and begging him to stay through our tears, we all just felt really tired and sad and talked about Japanese cartoons all night instead. We'll miss you, Sal

A note on episode timing: I know the last few episodes have gone up at kind of random times. We changed our weekly recording time about a month back, and it ended up confusing things a bit on my end. In any case, going forward I plan to post the podcast on Wednesday nights; sorry for the inconsistency for a little while there.

Hi, I'm a former newspaper journalist who got tired of having a front row seat to the death of print. There probably could be some interesting story there about a disenchanted reporter moving on ... more + disclosures
