Episode 65 - The Quarantined Gathering of Godfathers!

The world may be shut down, everything may be suspended and even cancelled, but our show will be continuing for all of you out there to listen to and pass the time with. And joining us on our first show in this brave and quiet new world we find ourselves in is Stephanie from Dub Talk, here to have some fun and dunk on her boyfriend with the rest of us after we talk about the rampant effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused for… well, everything. Make sure to wash your hands for 20 seconds with hot water and soap, it’s very important. And while you’re doing that, we’ll be talking about some upcoming and returning projects, a great new addition to Netflix, the first look at summer’s home video releases, and a fun chat about the recently re-released – with a new English dub – Tokyo Godfathers! (For more, check out the episode of Dub Talk all about it right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfUy278xGKU)
