This month, the Fireside Friends are back on their bullshit with a discussion of the anime Sanrio Boys. How cute is the anime? Does it come off as a cynical marketing scheme? Do the boys kiss? The answer to all of these questions (and more!) can be found in our discussion. Also in this episode, we ask ourselves: What media did we used to be ashamed of liking? What did we dismiss at an early age, and what was met with mockery from our peers?
And finally, the most important question: What’s with the Kidz Bop cover of All The Small Things?
Discussion of Sanrio Boys begins at 25:40.
Next month’s shared experience is the 1979 film The Warriors!
Our podcast theme is "April Elsewhere" by The Orchestral Movement of 1932 found via Opsound.org.
