A kindred spirit in podcast form
Extremely enjoyable, makes me laugh, makes me think about my own opinions of Anne & adaptations... what happened to this podcast though?? There haven’t been any new episodes since over a year ago :(
Japan and Anne
As a long time reader of the Anne of Green Gables books, I often wondered what the attraction was in the story for Japanese people. When I visited Prince Edward Island, the answers I got to my questions about this matter we’re very unsatisfactory. After listening to the podcast on the subject, however, now I know. This was an extraordinarily good segment. If like me you’ve wondered about this, listen to the AnneCast segment on this topic! Great research well explained!
Diana Barry IS boring...
Oh no! Why this is a fine kettle of fish! Shawna must have actually dissolved into a “puddle of anger and sadness”! Cursed be the dreadful “Anne with an E”! AnneCast Season 2 is not to be it seems.
I am in the depths of despair (Marilla’s disapproval of such stuff and nonsense aside) ... this podcast was the plum puff of a podcasts. And now it is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes.
Come back, please?
