Goodbye Jojo
Don't worry, we're still keeping it in the outro. This episode, we discuss our favorite parts of Jojo, some stuff we still don't quite understand, and gear up for our very own second season!

We don't dwell on them but they ARE there.) As always, find us on Twitter: @isthisajojospod and @knurtt. Music by Komiku: Fight, run, breath deeply.

The End of The Boss
We've arrived at the conclusion of Jojo's and final four episodes (36-39) of Golden Wind: we say goodbye to the Bucci gang, Polnareff, and Diavolo himself. It's been quite a ride. In two weeks, we'll be back with an episode to recap our own bizarre adventure. And we'll reveal next anime we're watching. And then... we'll see you in 2021 for season two.

The Friends We Made Along the Way
Damn, I still can't believe that Kira got █████ by ██████??? Seems a bit unrealistic to have everyone █████ like that, especially when he said he was basically unstoppable. This episode finishes part 4 of Jojo's! We'll be back in two weeks with the first five episodes of part 5.  This week, instead of asking you to support our show or providing you with a link to look further, we urge you to find some way to do good in your community, or to set aside some time to nurture yourself. Take care! As always, find us on Twitter: @isthisajojospod and @knurtt. Music by Komiku: Fight, run, breath deeply and Poupi on a scooter.
