Episode 106 – Ayacon Review

ditb106

 

We are back with a guest filled review of Ayacon 2013. The final Ayacon ever. Never to return. Dead. Kaput. Gone. Joining us to put the convention in a sack and leave it by the side of the motorway are Leon Everett, Greg Driver, Gary Hedges, Lewis Smith and DJ Snap. Did I miss anyone?

Plus, the UK anime releases and some WATCHUWATCH. No Retro Weekly Recap though as we had too much to get through.

Episode 85 – Dynamite In The Brain Pilot Episode

Here is something different from our usual podcast.

The product of decades spent listening to BBC Radio 4, this is a pilot episode for a panel show/quiz version of the podcast, expanding on the games we play on the episodes with guests on.

It was an interesting experiment, and when we do it again, there’s a few changes I’ll make behind the scenes, and one rule change to the final round. Hopefully though this first draft feels different to the typical anime podcast.

On this episode, Anthony competes against Lewis Smith and Leon Everett. Who will win? Find out on episode 85 of Dynamite In The Brain…

Episode 84 – Dead Leaves

Leon Everett and Lewis Smith join us for the first of two episodes. This week we talk about the 2004 Hiroyuki Imaishi film DEAD LEAVES. And for some reason, Sucker Punch will get talked about much more than you would expect.

Also, will Tomorrow’s Nadja make it through another Weekly Retro Recap?

No game though, for reasons that will become clear on next week’s episode.

Episode 57 – Amecon Review

We are joined by a bumper load of guests today. Returning to the Mayhem Moon are Ebbie from the BizarreJelly5 videolog and Leon Everett. And joining us for the first time ever, it’s DJ Snap himself, James Simmonds. They (and Anthony) all went to Amecon and they are here to tell you (and Brian) all about it. Plus, can they identify their own tweets in Brian’s new game?

You better listen to it before it goes out of print!

Episode 50 – Fiftieth Episode Bonanza

Can you believe it? We made it to fifty episodes! And what better way to celebrate this milestone of podcasting that reading out a list? How about reading out a list of the TOP 50 ANIME YOU MUST SEE BEFORE WE SNEAK INTO YOUR HOUSE AND MURDER YOU & YOUR LOVED ONES IN YOUR SLEEP? (That is how you linkbait this sort of nonsense, right?)

Not enough friend listener, then how about if we told you this list was made by the guests from the previous forty nine episodes? Still not interested? Howzabout a LEON EVERETT? Whattabout a NIALL FLANAGAN from SECRET OF THE SAILOR MADNESS?

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? But that’s not all, there’s also a shout out from a TOTALLY REAL ANIME CHARACTER and a WHOLLY ORIGINAL game show.

A partial recording of our Anison Armageddon panel from Kitacon 4. Anthony and Brian are joined by Leon Everett, Niall Flanagan and Gary Hedges to review rap anime songs. The audience weigh in with their own opinions and a fun time is had by all.

Big thanks to Lewis Smith for lending his Blue microphone after Brian left his at home…

Anthony and what turned out to be a really quite ill, but gravelly voiced, Brian are joined this week by Leon Everett and Elliot Page to talk the Kitacon 4 weekend. The people, the panels, it’s all here in a bumper episode of Dynamite In The Brain.

In fact it can’t be contained in just one podcast. Check the website for a site-only bonus episode, a recording of (most of) our Anison Armageddon panel.
