    Bonus: Radio Manga Special (with Grant)

    Bonus: Radio Manga Special (with Grant)

    This week, have another bonus episode of our patreon series Radio Manga (in which Matt and Sibyl alternate deep-dives on single works with shotgun spreads of what each has been reading), but this time with a guest! Grant (of various podcasts across the years) joins the crew to take a look at Masamune Shirow's The Ghost in the Shell manga, a brief look at his career's English reflection, and a slightly horrified trip down the rabbit-hole of his modern output.


    Grant showed up because he's part of a new project their team is trying to launch, and a fresh Kickstarter launching alongside this special episode. Give it a listen and a look if you want to hear a shady uncle go after what they deserve in a cyberpunk landscape... or other actors. There are other actors too.

My preferred gaming podcast

I never, ever write reviews for podcasts, but this one deserves praise. I found these individuals from their (excellent) Xenosaga coverage, which gives my favorite JRPG trilogy more than its due. Their FFXIII season just wrapped, too - they have a great track record for covering games I defend to my skeptical friends.

Yay!

I’m glad that someone is talking about Xenosaga. An otherwise interesting podcast.

Great Show!

Really detailed and fun to listen to. Great for playing the covered games vicariously.
