The BEST JJBA Podcast

I started watching JJBA with the English Dub on Netflix a few months ago and had no idea what I was getting myself into. Fast forward to today and I’ve binged my way through Stardust Crusaders on Amazon and DIU on Crunchy roll. I just started Golden Wind and had gone to Reddit to read episode discussions as a companion thread to prolong the JoJo adventure... yet there was still a void I didn’t know I had and I wished I had people to share this experience with. This podcast fills that void and makes me want to wait until the S5 podcast is caught up so I feel like I’m watching the episodes along with the crew. I went back and am bingeing on S4 of the podcast and the commentary is the best. Love your chemistry with each other and how the show flows. I love the queer perspective on the series even though I’m straight... it just adds a whole new hilarious view to the series that actually makes sense. Love the podcast. I hope it never ends when you’re done podcasting about part 5. Hope you guys continue with the podcast whether or not it’s about JJBA cuz I love your show and could listen to you all talk about anything.

Amazing!

I love this podcast, it is absolutely hilarious. Plus, I appreciate learning more about the queerness of Jojo, and the hosts give a great perspective on that!

Not for everyone

For reference I listened to the podcast through the beginning into the middle of Stardust Crusaders. Their shoes about Part 4 might get better, but during Part 2 onwards the show seemed to take a big dip in quality.

The big problem is that it’s not particularly funny. The majority of the humor seems to be generated from pointing out one character or another is gay. This is a constant fallback and as a gay guy it generates little amusement personally, but even beyond that it’s obnoxious even if I don’t think the hosts mean any harm by it

Said hosts are also really bad at following the narrative of the story. They get lost and distracted and are very often scant on details unless they run into something they really dislike or find offensive in which case they will generally dedicate more time to that than anything else. A lol of weird and funny junk happens in various episodes that they miss.

Voice wise the hosts are good for the most part, though they often sound (and also honestly seem) uninterested to be there. Audio mixing is good as well. The problem really is the content itself sadly.

If you can stand the repetitive nature and lack of jokes and focus, it might be good background noise if you’re into jojo. Otherwise I’d say steer clear
