    E17 - Shin Kamen Rider (Prologue)

    E17 - Shin Kamen Rider (Prologue)

    On this episode of The World is My Burrito, Jose and I taco 'bout the wacky, zany 1990s straight to video film and cult classic, Shin Kamen Rider: Prologue. I cover a little bit of V-Cinema history and provide some stats concerning the franchise. The new film directed by Hideako Anno releases later this month so start getting hype!

    I cover why Ghost of Tsushima is a little late and what I was doing for the past 2 weeks. It was nothing important, I was just saving The Neatcast from a year without decent content.

Informative - but make it interesting

I love this podcaster. He is able to correlate so many different pieces of information into a cohesive topic of discussion. Well researched and articulated. So good!

Informative and Entertaining

TWIMB does a great job of picking a topic, researching it, and laying out the info so it’s easily digestible. It doesn’t matter if you have absolutely no knowledge of the topic or you are well versed with the content, Kory is an incredibly knowledgeable host and has peaked my interest in new material. Keep up the good work.

This burrito hits the spot!

I'm absolutely loving this podcast, Kory really hits the ground running in Episode 1 and never stops. It's all things nerd - manga, games, and old kaiju movies all wrapped in one tasty burrito for your ears. Keep it coming!
