Hey everybody, we've got two - count 'em - TWO guests this week! Hold on to your butts!

First up is Michael Underwood, Director of Entertainment for Anime Expo and the Man In Charge of the anime music video competition this year. He's here to talk about the (apparently unexpectedly) incredibly controversial decision to include cash prizes in this year's competition, and chat about how anime music videos have changed over the years, for better and for worse. Woo!

Then along comes Chris Beveridge, anime and manga editor at Mania.com (but you all know him as the AnimeonDVD.com honcho) and he joins us for a chat on the changing world of media collecting. Is it still worth having a massive physical library? Would life be better with just a mainframe in the basement? Are big bulky special editions stupid purchases? And could you really retire on a full legit R1 set of Sailor Moon? C'mon down!

You can listen to the show on our pla>yer here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:
