Crime Scene Investigations #002: Otakon 2011

This is a bonus segment of the Speakeasy Podcast we like to call Crime Scene Investigations. These are random bonus podcasts that we record live from various events. There is no regular schedule for these. We will put them up as quickly as we can when the opportunity for one occurs. We suspect they will mostly be from conventions but we might work in some interviews and conversation from NY events as fate allows.

In this edition of Crime Scene Investigations, we talk about our experiences on Friday at Otakon 2011 with Basil and Kevin of the OSMcastPatz from Insert-Disc and Podlabor, and Carl from Ogiue Maniax. There is discussion of the Otakon Game Show, Angel ScandySMakoto Shinkai, Masao Maruyama, CLAMP, Remembering Satoshi Kon, and Art of Akira. Of course we discuss memes, sandwiches, and the little things we both love and hate at the convention. By the way check out the transformation of opinion over the Ice Cold Water guy from this to this.

A Burning Heart to Heart Podcast

Last week I got together with Patz from Insert Disc and Carl from Ogiue Maniax to record an episode of Podlabor that had been anticipated for a while. Where in we gush about Brave Police J-Decker, a giant robot show from the early 90’s that we all just recently watched to completion. I had talked about it a little on the blog, but this recording was way more fun! Check out the podcast, check out J-Decker, they are both a good time!

Podlabor Episode #6 – Brave Up J-Decker

Don’t expect us to explain Star Driver.

So we did a little podcast with Patz over on Insert Disc along with Elliot from Ani-Gamers. We dive right into a high-level Star Driver discussion so even if you don’t care about spoilers, it probably all sounds like nonsense unless you’ve seen the show. Whoops! But before that you can hear us discuss streaming anime, Crunchyroll’s new news initiative, and a few other things.
