Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Weekly Shonen Jump is now simultaneously released in Japan and America, and we've got editor-in-chief Andy Nakatani and Team Jump editors Urian Brown and Misaki Kido to chat about it! We cover the digital magazine's production, the threat of piracy and much more!
You can listen to the show on our player 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: Yeah, some cursin'.
