Otaku 5-0 Season 2: Episode 7

Aloha everybody!

I am proud to present the next episode of our podcast!

This episode brings together on the panel (for the third consecutive time) our Lead Contributor Cupid & our newest staff member Zell.

Since we rather enjoyed Cupid's new bit (A Word From Our Sponsor), we decided to spice things up a bit and showcase another fake product, in the style of a radio ad. While we may never surpass the quality of those produced by Saturday Night Live (or The Monty Python wannabes, as I like to call them), we can at least try to give them a run for their money.

You may have noticed that the past few episodes we've done have been on the short side. That is because I have decided to impose a 80-minute time limit for any episode we produce, mostly to help keep our contributors on-topic. While the conversation does stray into random chatter at times, this will help keep this at a minimum.

Haha good job guys! I hope to make it to your panel during the Kon.

Btw I voted Mr. A. After meeting and listening to Cupid, he sorta has that feel for Mr. A.
