Those of you who listen to our podcast know us for our, well, occasionally edgy humor. This is a warning to all those who are young and/or impressionable that this episode goes straight over the edge and into the nether regions where no sexual innuendo has gone before. At least for us.
Some of this has to do with our news topics–we not only talk about the Haruhi-chan “Nice Boat” debacle, we also talk about the strange phenomenon of Viagra-fueled men dying in love hotels (in my best This American Life/Ira Glass impersonation), and a 74-year old Japanese male porn star who’s still going strong. As reported by CNN, of course. If they can do it, so can we…right?
Finally, we answer your mail, and then have a roundtable discussion about the season’s best new show, Rideback.
NOTE: The iTunes/AAC version doesn’t have images or chapters because, for some reason, I can’t get it Soundtrack Pro to export the enhanced version correctly. Sorry, iTunes fans.
