All-Star Supernerds

by Zac Bertschy & Justin Sevakis,

ANNCast 087- All-Star Supernerds

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

It's been a while since we've set up the Bat Signal, so joining us this week are Mike Toole and Daryl Surat, and we talk about anime. A lot. We chat about Redline and Spice and Wolf and Tiger & Bunny and a whole lot of other stuff.

But that's not all! This episode is about as close to what it would be like if you were having beers with the lot of us, so you've been warned. We also get in to revisiting The Matrix and what that whole franchise really represents now, what the word "Fan" should mean, Justin's love of teenage ennui, the slashfic potential of both Otter Pops and Severus Snape x Daryl, and more. It's a fun time - if you can handle it.

You can listen to the show on our player here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:

NSFW Language Warning: This one is pretty inappropriate altogether.
