ANNCast Episode 003 - Bricken the House
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
In the first segment, Justin and I have a brief chat about Bluray, what's out on Bluray, and what a pain it is to master Bluray discs. That's all over about 5 minutes in and then Rob joins us to talk about the transition from fan to professional and the life-sapping journey it entails, and then we really get into some of the most hilarious licenses dumped on us by the R1 anime companies during the anime bubble earlier this decade. Then it's Q&A time! Which of our illustrious hosts hated Rosco's Chicken and Waffles? You'll have to listen to find out!
You can listen to the show on our player here, direct-download the MP3 version here, and we're finally available on iTunes here (just paste that URL into your iTunes player), or you can find us by searching for 'ANNCast' in the iTunes Store. Also: if you like the show (or don't like the show, I guess) be sure to write us up a review over on iTunes! It'd be a big help!
NSFW Language Warning: thanks to the sailor's mouth on Bricken, this show has some more swearing than usual. Not a lot more, just more than usual. You'll learn to love it.
