Great Show, Lots of Fun
I love the hosts. Great discussions from open, honest, smart folks. Hilarious segmenets on MyAnimeList Reviews and bad forgotten anime.
Highly Recommended (Even if you don't give a Fig about Anime)
I'm not an anime fan. I've watched (a phrase which here means "roped into") a handful of anime. But DaLadyBugProductions has produced an anime-focused podcast so outstanding that, against all odds, I still listen to every episode. Between their cogent literary insights and hosts' personalities, the show's a winner.
