Learning by Osmond-sis

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.

NSFW Language Warning: There's a little swearing, I guess.
