Kropotkin's Conquest of Tofu
Iketani's quest for getting some continues (unfortunately). Takumi struggles (surprisingly). There's lesbians (delightful). Wojtek uses the show as a pin coushin.  If you're not a fan of completely unrelated 7 minute tangents that are kept in just so Ognjen can make a joke, perhaps this podcast isn't for you! Sorry for the audio in this one!

50 frame Nakazato
We had a bit of a rough summer so this episode took a while to edit, sorry! It's time for more bad jokes and speculations on what could Kenji possibly do for a living. Iketani meets a woman and that will definitely not go wrong. Also Wojtek does actually own a Detective Conan volume it just took him a few months to find it. Blame it on the Italians.
