Fun and nostalgic and thoughtful!
A great podcast about old Internet animation, Flash cartoons, Newgrounds, AlbinoBlackSheep and the like. By episode 3 they really start finding their feet and there are some great insights as well as laugh-out-loud jokes. Definitely worth checking out if you're at all interested in pre-smartphone Internet culture and independent animation. Or if you just like to remember things like Perfect Kirby or Homestar Runner.
