The Anime Nostalgia Podcast's Year in Review

Last year, I did my first ever Year in Review podcast episode...and a new year means a new one! But this time around, I thought I'd try something different: I want your guys' input! So please, dear listeners, take a moment to let me know your opinions on older anime titles that were re-released this year (and other things) on my first ever survey HERE! One lucky listener who fills out the survey will be chosen at random to win a special holiday prize (open world-wide!) But hurry--you gotta do it before December 11th. I'll announce the winner on the new episode of the podcast when me & returning guest Zee (from last year's Year in Review episode!) will discuss the results.

Good luck, and thanks again for listening!

EDIT: Survey is now closed! Thanks to all who participated. The winner will be announced on the next podcast episode. :D

The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - Ep 21

 iTunes subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

The conclusion of my Satoshi Kon retrospective with guests Heather and Casey! If you haven't listened to part 1 yet, I urge you to do that first--you can listen to that here. In this part, we talk about the last of Kon's works, his passing, personal memories, and even read some listener's memories about a creator who never stopped chasing after his dreams.
Special thanks to Twitter user Raidanzoup for his email about meeting Satoshi Kon & sharing this sketch of Paprika Kon drew for him!
