With Respect to the Rising Sun
This show does Asian Cinema in the greatest respect possible. A Great balance of humor and Knowlege you would want in a podcast. Prepared to be blown away as Bo takes you to school!
If you love Asian horror look no further!
This is a very intelligent look in Asian Horror films that breaks the films down and dissects them to their core. Wicked awesome podcast!
Smart chat about weird movies
I really enjoy this podcast, the banter is casual but not juvenile like some others. A must listen for fans of cult Asian cinema.
