Lost Episode Remaster #2 (Originally Episode 49) - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure S1E10
(This episode first came out on 11/12/2017 but was removed from our feed due to the use of copyrighted music. It is reuploaded with some audio cleanup and the sensitive music removed.) The original description for this episode is gone! But despite what Marc and Jackie say in the hasty, remote intro, this pod only covers (1) JoJo TV anime episode - New York's JoJo. It's a nice trip down nostalgia lane, and will get you excited to hear the three of us talk about new JoJo episodes again - whenever they come out. I believe we also talk about Narcos and voting in local politics.Rate us nicely on Apple Podcasts Support us on Patreon Follow us on Twitter

There's nothing we can say about the challenges of IRL 2020 that hasn't already been said a thousand times. As a podcast, however, we've had a pretty great year.

We saw a lot of wonderful support on Patreon, and checked out a ludicrous number of different animes. Our horizons are expanded! So this episode, we rank our (personal) top three anime we saw this year, as well as The Most Bizarre, The Horniest, and our Least Favorites. We also talk about Black Christmas, mecha sports animes, and The Vow. Please rate and review us on Apple Podcasts! It'll help us show up properly when people search for JoJo stuff on there.

We also talk about if we're too old for sleepovers, dinosaurs vs. lizards, and the games Wacky Gator and Dinosaur Dentist. Since Myles was having internet issues and couldn't finish giving his thoughts on Dorohedoro, here are some of the thoughts he sent over via email: "Hi Jjbp crew, It's Myles, normally a co-host of this show, but out of commission this week due to wi-fi issues. I found this show, whose name I will not attempt to spell, tedious. I did not like having to learn the rules of yet another world, and rather than explaining things, the show added more complexity as it went. Just tell me what's happening please. Things I did like: all the food; Kaiman, who is lizard Okayasu; the action; the art. I liked the strong, non-petite jovial women as well. It seems like I enjoyed many aspects of this show, but I will probably never watch it again.  Not really horny at the moment, Myles" We'll also have the solo Myles' audio from our first attempt at recording (on Aug. 16) on our Patreon.
