The Shonen Fiasco Show is a "book club" podcast made specifically to give the cancelled manga of Weekly Shonen Jump their time to shine. Each episode, our hosts, Adam Tetramore and Alex Hill, review a single WSJ series that got the boot before reaching chapter 50, in order to evaluate whether that series deserved it's fate or if the world ended up missing out on a hidden gem.
