Oldtaku no Radio
About This Show
In each episode of Oldtaku no Radio, Ink and Jared Nelson don a new lens to delve into a specific cartoon series, animated movie, or game that's affected one or both of them and pull it apart before your very ears to explain why.
Ink's drunken-master style of theorizing and Jared's combination of foreign experience-based insight and raw smarts make a ton of information fun to swallow.
Episodes run about an hour each (unless the hosts gets overexcited and get caught up in their own or each other's over-analysis) and come out every month.

Oldtaku no Radio #008 – your name.
Because we were not invited to the cool podcast (actually, we recorded this before the AGP), the Oldtaku crew and special guest Scott Spaziani recorded our own your name. podcast. Scott and Ink are seasoned Shinkai viewers (both have panels on the director that they present at cons), and this is Jared's first exposure to the cloud/foot/loneliness director extraordinaire. We kept the first half free of spoilers by discussing themes and technique, but the second half contains spoilers galore to dig into the meat of the movie. So continue on while keeping in mind that watching a Shinkai movie is more about experiencing the journey than knowing plot, but your name. does employ elements that are better experienced unadulterated the first time around.
