Anime Diet Audio Column – The View from the AT Field 1

The audio column represents our views/opinions/dissections of anime and other related or perhaps not quite related subjects with shots of humor/sarcasm/seriousness added.

The name of his column is “The View from the AT Field.” This week’s topic: “That Magical Element in Anime called “Fan service.” Short Description: cutting humor aimed at stereotypes.
