ANNCast 092 - Learning by Osmond-sis
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
We start out this week talkin' about movies - mostly reminiscing thanks to the glut of mid-90s blockbusters coming out on blu-ray! Plus Drive and the criminally underseen 50/50! And if you didn't think we'd do 8 minutes on The Lion King it turns out YOU WERE WRONG!
Then ANN's UK News Editor and author of several books including Satoshi Kon: The Illusionist joins us to talk about his early life as a fan in the UK, what brought him into fandom in the first place and his long and winding road toward becoming a professional writer. Then we chat a bit about Eden of the East and suddenly, it's Twitter time! Oh, how the time flies by!
Note: due to the preview guide sucking up all of my time I had a limited amount of time to edit the show this week, so it's a little more "um"-my than usual. You'll live.
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:
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: There's a little swearing, I guess.
