We start out this week by chatting with Gia Manry and rookie ANN critic Rebecca Silverman about the summer season, which you probably expected! Warning: there's a lot of complaining and disgusted noises because there were a lot of really groan-worthy shows this time around. Hey, it happens.

Then returning champion Jim Vowles from Otakon stops on by to talk about Anime Expo, AM2, and more importantly, the show he's actually volunteering for and has been for a very long time, Otakon! We talk about their guests, what they have going on that's new, policy changes, and of course, the neverending beef between west coast and east coast anime con attendees. That beef is neverending, for serious.

It's a fun show, c'mon in!!
