ANNCast 086- Super Manga Pals Tokyo Drift
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
First Justin brings in ANN's CEO Chris Macdonald to discuss our rather unfortunate 36 hours of downtime last week, and why the site's still not exactly zippy. Forgive us if we sound exhausted. It's 'cause we are.
Then Zac chats with returning champions Ed Sizemore and Deb Aoki to talk about all things manga! We discuss what we've all been reading lately, speculate about the projected success of Jmanga.com, eventually talk about Borders, of course, and then it's Twitter time!
You can listen to the show on our player here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:
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: Deb Aoki participated in this podcast, so there's a lot of swearing, but you like it that way.
