Podtoid-san 62: In Soviet Russia, Face Books YOU!


In Soviet Russia, you write the intro paragraph, but unfortunately for me, Soviet Russia does not exist anymore. They used to make life so much easier back then by doing everything we didn’t want to do as part of, what some people thought was a weird joke; but that’s not the truth. This was a cultural obligation sown into the soul of every Soviet Russian alive. They didn’t play basketball, basket ball played them; and so on and so forth. This is what ultimately destroyed the Soviets, and it sometimes brings a tear to my eye. In other words, we have a Facebook group!

In this fine episode of Podtoid-san we talk more about Tokyopop and its fight to retain itself in this new world of manga. Because if it didn’t adapt, it would end up like PIQ. Join us as we give this magazine an impromptu funeral (of anger!). Metal Gear Solid 4 is finally here and most of us are doing nothing but playing that, so hear us talk about it and about video games in general. It might not have anything to do with anime, but it is still entertaining as hell. Not only that, but we cover so much more. So take a listen to this Soviet-run episode of Podtoid-san.
