It’s that time of the month. That time for cramps, mood swings, and podcasts! The A-01 Podcast is back once again and we’re here to talk about all things happening in the otaku world. This also wraps up our third year as a podcast!

D’awww… ~sniffle

And yet, we still didn’t graduate to A-02. We got held back another year so we’ll just have to think about working twice as hard for 2019 and then just not put in any of the work! Until then, enjoy our final podcast of the year!
