Up first this week Zac and Justin gab about stuff they've been watching, mostly the Phoenix OVAs and this movie Zac really did not care for called Loups-Garous. Also: Community might get the axe! What say we?

Then our guest Stacy Dodson, Executive Vice President of The Anime Network stops by to talk shop. The early days of the network, their streaming initiative, just what is their relationship with Sentai Filmworks (answer: don't ask!) and the future of the channel. And then it's Twitter time! Huzzah!!
