Wayward Podcast Ep 42: The Popularity Schism

0 Submitted by on Wed, 22 June 2016, 09:59

Toshi and Richard are back and addressing a rather interesting listener question this episode. The topic: the differences in series popularity between Japan and the West. We talk about several series that have had a huge cultural impact in the Western world, but are little more than a footnote in the country where they were created and theorize as to why.

Also, sadly, due to job conflicts, Richard will not be able to record new episodes for the time being. So, while Toshi frantically scrambles for a new co-host, the Wayward Podcast is going to be put on temporary hiatus. But fear not! You haven’t heard the last of us yet…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
