[Podcast] Digibro Never Shuts Up, Episode 1

As explained inside, I decided to do a podcast because I have a tendency to go on long rants and tangents all the time, and my friends said I should try to capture these on recordings. Now that I have the equipment for it I want to give it a shot, especially because there are certain things that I feel come off as too wooden and lifeless in my writing, compared to how they are in my speech.

What’s in the episode:

00:00 – Opening Song: On the Yacht With You by Trial of the Golden Witch

00:27 – Introduction

01:34 – “The Emo/Country Conundrum”

13:20 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

28:33 – A Ridiculously Long Discussion About Anime DVDs

01:05:41 – Closing Song: Beef Lo Mein And You by Trial of the Golden Witch

If you want to be a guest on this show, contact me! I hope to do an episode a week.
