For the first time in almost five years, RC is happy to bring you another podcast. These are exceptional times, and this was an exceptional podcast – not only did we have six participants, but only half the podcast covered anime-related topics.
A big thank-you to everyone who participated, and especially to Zaiden for being the main driver in
annoying persuading us into recording. Our panel ranged from the U.S. West Coast to the Canadian Rockies to Quebec, England and Japan. And our topics ranged almost as widely. Anime in the age of pandemic, and coping with isolation – we hope our humble conversations on these matters can provide you with a welcome diversion during quarantine.
