If you don’t listen Rei with have to do it again

I have listened to other Evangelion pods and NERVous wrecks is HANDS DOWN the best Eva pod you’ll find! The hosts get that the show in a way I don’t think everyone does. It’s about trauma it makes people messed up and it makes you hold a mirror to yourself. They have good insightful discussions of a show that’s means so much to so many.

A Great Revisit

Years back, I watched through Neon Genesis Evangelion and came away with mixed feelings. This show has given me a great opportunity to look back at this show and sort out what parts work for me and what parts don’t. Not to mention, it points out a ton of really cool things that I never even considered.
