The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 87: All About RetroCrush with Mary

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

Just recently, a new streaming app was launched in the US & Canada called RetroCrush: a free-with-ads streaming platform with a focus on (mostly) older anime! So of course, I had to know more--and joining me to tell me all about it is the head of RetroCrush's licensing, Mary! Listen as Mary gives us a bit of her personal history with anime, a bit of background on how RetroCrush came to be, and answering a TON of your listener questions as well.

SOLD OUT! THANKS EVERYONE! The 1st ever Anime Nostalgia "Pen Pal" Mailers!

These are officially sold out! Thanks again to everyone who supported! 

A small pile of colorfully decorated envelopes with the prase "Anime Nostalgia Podcast's first ever "Pen Pal" Mailers!"

Inspired by my Pen Pal episode from a few years ago, I thought in this time where many of us are confined to staying home as much as possible, something that always cheers me up on a rough day is getting something fun in the mail! So I'm using the 10 fanarts I drew from people's suggestions on my personal twitter to create envelopes stuffed with goodies to mail out to 10 people who leave me tips this month on Ko-fi! Each of these envelopes will all be different, decorated in the style of how I'd send out pen pal letters: covered in anime-related stickers & washi tape, stamped with anime ink-stampers, and filled with stuff like fanart, stickers, and cute stationery! These will be sold on a first come, first severed basis starting TODAY (May 1st, 2020). Once they are sold out, I will edit this post to indicate that they're sold out and being prepped to be mailed.

Fanart done by yours truly of various anime (and game) characters!

Now, since this is a new idea I'm trying, please bear with me as I explain how this first attempt at something like this will work.
