505 Naruto

Wow, guys, it’s another first time, because this week Pru and MK are joined by not only The Hoyden, but also by MK’s friend Paul, the first dude we’ve ever had on the podcast. We open with a quick discussion of Sailor Moon Crystal, Mythbusters, Fresh Off the Boat, and the Legend of Zelda Netflix show (confirmed after recording). For our longer discussion this week, we dip into one of the worst fandoms that all of us share: Naruto. Tune in to learn about why Naruto is the worst, how Kishimoto gave us all blue balls, and then listen to us struggle to figure out why Kakashi is so great. (Because he is. He is SO great.) It’s a dark day for fandom, so you might as well join us as we fail at everything.

Note: there is some construction noise in the background of this episode because fucking Toronto, of course there is. Sorry about that.

This week we premier our new episode format with a quick discussion of #Gamergate, and a hodgepodge of new and returning shows including The Librarians, Mythbusters (and their new format), and Marvel’s Agent Carter. For our longer discussion this week, we chat about some recent norm-space incursions on fandom’s crumbling fourth wall and set a timer for receipt of hate mail by talking about paying for fan art versus paying for fan fic.
