Let’s Go #154 – Let’s Get Action!

Who are you? A loyal follower of the show we pray! Especially as we soldier on with a reduced but still substantial slate of anime deserving of discussion. Mu discovers her true identity, or at least the role the dubiously charming Tommy has cast her for in Listeners, Minare learns the secret origins of her own name in Wave, Listen To Me!, and the cast of Super Shiro reveal hitherto unknown talents in the Show-Off Sing-Off. Always be yourself kids!

Let’s Go #153 – Let’s Put On The Show Right Here!

Right here, right now, weeks after the fact! Brian's podcast proliferation PC is finally tuned up so we can liberate these recordings from a short while ago when not quite everything had been postponed. Think of it as a little reminder of what you've missed that's due to return soon, including but not limited to Gal & Dino demonstrating some parlour games, Extra Olympia Kyklos showcasing their alternative Olympics and Super Shiro illustrating which mushrooms are safe to eat. We'll be right back after these messages from our sponsors!

Show #191: Clerks - The Animated Series

Libby Cudmore and Joseph Wade of The OST Party drop by the shop to speak to the staff of SOTSM about some items on their receipt they feel short-changed by, such as this animated adaptation of Kevin Smith's debut feature given a new lease of life by Seinfeld scribe David Mandel and the talented folks at Disney TV Animation. That's correct! This is technically a Disney cartoon, and that's not the only surprising detail in a discussion loaded with corporate interference, jokes which aged like milk and tales of misspent youth in the company of Kevin Smith and Kevin Smith-adajacent media. Don't forget to pick up something off the hot food counter for your Post Podcast Repaste on the way out!

Let’s Go! #152 – Let’s Get Some Exorcise

Minare's flair for the strange and macabre on the radio comes back to haunt her as a terrifying fax initiates an investigation into the supernatural that could make for ratings gold. Can she add "ghostbuster" to her array of surprising talents? Or should she just stick to the day job? Strange stories of the high tower, dinosaur DVDs and the ancient spirits of prog rock portend our most spine-chilling instalment yet! THE POWER OF ANIME COMPELS YOU!

Let’s Go! #151 – Let’s Go Crazy

An episode of Listeners that made even the most indifferent of observers stop and exclaim ''hold up: was that Prince?'' Not quite! But his legally distinct doppleganger is here to indulge in enough shameless musical references to put Hirohiko Araki to blushing. Nudity, 'nanas and New Year's Eve complete a fitting tribute to His Purple Highness. We're the kind you pick up in a secondhand store!

SOTSM x DITB: The Anime That Didn’t Make Us #16 – Pollyanna, Violinist of Hamelin & Moby Dick

Niall checked up on Brian and Antony over on Dynamite In The Brain to see how they're coping during all this, only to find them once again in a state of imagined reminiscence for cartoons they could have been enjoying in their youth were it not for those pesky geographic barriers. This edition is more highbrow than most with not one but two literary adaptations; a fairly straight World Masterpiece Theatre joint in 1986's The Story Of Pollyanna, Girl Of Love and Herman Melville making the logical progression to outer space in 1997's Hakugei: Legend Of The Moby Dick, while 1996's Violinist Of Hamelin provides a nice classical music accompaniment that sounds better than it looks. We got your tele-learning resources right here pal!

Let’s Go! #150 – Let’s Go To The Olympics

One hundred and fifty recordings later and still discovering truly brilliant entries in our storied survey of weekly TV cartoons. One such competitor is Extra Olympia Kyklos, wherein an ancient Greek specimen of physical prowess is catapulted to the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games via the amazing power of claymation! It'll do in a pinch in place of the cancelled 2020 effort, alongside a gradually winnowing regular slate of DJs, dinosaurs, dogs and detectives. It's gonna be a record-breaker!
