212: Behind the English Box
What kind of japes are you in for this time? Well, we've finally found a third subject to talk about on this show: "wacky foreigner" characters from Japan! The classic "Mr. James" returns, but first, livestream updates; Big Desk Update; a barbed argument about Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters; Al's awkward voice over encounters; Olympic music fails; how's that Crayon Shin-Chan summer vacation anyway? And how's Alex going to blow his tax money? This podcast is like having a portable *radio!*

208: Loto's Day Out
From our mouth to yours, it's the latest in Whopperisms! We're both changing computers and soundboards, which is just one of our problems; we updated our merch?! (Mostly just stickers, buy some stickers); wresting an old Twitter from the hands of criminals; tales of two convenience stores; just give Alex a business receipt; loving livestreaming, hence all the complaining; a moment to learn about animal fat; failing the gifted class, and a certain caller exposed! This podcast don't know from Adam.
I listen to this!!
So should you! Very good and weird and abstract and beautiful. This podcast is a journey with two friends into the abyss of their own relationship and the peaks of their love for one another. Rejoice and be merry. This is a fun listen.
Too Much Dragon Quest
I mean, how much can they talk about one freaking Famicom game?!
Apparently every episode!
Also, Alex doesn’t actually own a bar. He just stands in front of a vending machine in Naka ward, and charges folks to have him move out of the way momentarily so that they can order a drink.
Save yourself some time and just use the machines a block away!
Finally Ray isn’t real. It’s just Alex doing a weird voice, and frankly, nobody is buying it.
Have you ever noticed that they can’t talk at the same time? Exactly. Fake.
Have you ever wished You Look Nice Today was still around?
Well now it basically is. Ray and Alex are fun and hilarious. I’m six ix to ten years late in learning about No More Whoppers, but that just means I have 170 episodes of comedy to enjoy.
