The holiday season is upon us, so let’s get festive!
Here we are with another podcast! However, this time around we decided to focus less on the currently airing anime, and instead discuss a variety of fun topics, rounding it off with a lovely Christmas bow. So get warm and snug, grab some whisky (or chocolate milk) and listen in!
As a holiday treat, we came up with the idea of doing a somewhat festive-themed podcast, and it was up to me (Samu) to organise it all. We’ve got a different combination of writers from last time, with the returning Podfather and part-time writer on the site, Zanibas. Enzo once again hosted this 2-cour extravaganza, and Stilts made sure to bring the alcohol. However, there was some dispute about me being a bad Scotsman for daring not to love whisky – that discussion went beyond what was recorded here, but whatever your drink of choice I hope you enjoy this podcast. Whether you need some more anime for your backlog, feel like getting in the Christmas spirit with our selection of festive episodes, or just want to listen to us talk nonsense, there should be something here for you. We had fun, and I hope you do too!
