First up Justin drops by to catch up a little on what he's been up to, including a revisit to the world of Fruits Basket and some other stuff. Then we chat a bit about movies and Highschool of the Dead and some other things. Listen!!
For the interview this week we've got Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of the SPJA Mark Perez along with Director of Entertainment Group Michael Underwood (people with fancy titles) from Anime Expo on to talk about proper hamster care. Bet you didn't see that one coming, did you?
