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.Read more »

Oldtaku no Radio #021 – Ergo Proxy
Airing wayyyyyyyyy back in 2006, Ergo Proxy is the story of a bored, privileged emo girl (Re-l) and her flamboyant autoreiv companion, Iggy, in an oasis cursed to be both cradle and catacomb. Romdo is a domed city and, to its inhabitants, the last viable living space on an otherwise toxic planet. But there’s an influx of immigrants from the outside world seeking refuge, a disease sweeping the robotic residents (autoreivs) that’s making them gain consciousness, and an unknown monster threatening the daily comfort of the bourgeoisie.
Join Jared and Ink as they look at all this dystopian future sci-fi series as we look at the themes it touches upon; if it conforms to, bends, or breaks certain genre touchpoints; and just how gosh-darned pretty it still is. (Seriously, folks, if you love a moody-as-f*ck anime written by a wordy philosophy/theology major, this is your jam.)Read more »
