Dynamite In The Brain – Episode 9 – Dynamite Dans Le Cerveau

DITB9

Today we are joined by Ivan B. to talk anime in France during the 80s and 90s. Ivan has run the panel “Sacre Bleu!” at Kitacon since the convention started so if you want to know more why not check that out if you get the chance.

There may be some sound issues, for some reason Ivan and I came back quieter after we lost Anthony early the recording. Hopefully Levelator has hidden all sins.

Dynamite In The Brain – Episode 8 – I Ain’t Afraid of No Popples

DITB7

Gary Hedges returns to continue our discussion of the DiC shows from our childhood that had Japanese animation talent working on them in one form or another. We forgot to record the first 45 minutes of the podcast so if we seem a little flat to begin with it’s because we’re going over stuff we just talked about again. Those missing minutes were gold too. Nevermind though as there are a lot of minutes in this latest episode of Dynamite in the Brain, the podcast that loves anime and hates fun!
