In the 4th(?) episode of OGAP ALPHA. We take you to Pat Jonez very first podcast apperence. It was Manga Out Loud with Ed Sizemore, where they reviewed Barefoot Gen, quite possible one of the most terrifying Manga ever made. To do this, we had to abuse the creative commons license in order to bring you this episode. Just in time to miss Halloween.
THIS SHOW IS ABOUT
In this particular episode of Manga Out Loud. Ed, Rob, Sam & Pat review Barefoot Gen. The panel comes to a general consensus that , even though it has it’s flaws, this manga is “high art”, and is a must read for anyone. You can get your own copy and psychologically abuse yourself by going here. For those of you who don’t know about Barefoot Gen, allow us to introduce you
(P.S. We here at OGAP are terrible people and is video is one example why.)
For some reason. Ed decided to let Pat on his podcast to talk about Barefoot Gen (Pat suggested that his persistence, coupled with his contribution to the Manga Moveable Feast about Barefoot Gen, is what landed him on the panel.) He was great this episode, even with Skype and Pat Jonez on his back. He is truly a professional podcaster, unlike us.
BTW he also plugs an article that he wrote about Barefoot Gen, which you can find here.
Sam had to deal with the Plague known as Pat Jonez & Skype cocktail. But, against all odds, he came out on the other side.
Sam was also brave enough to host the Barefoot Gen MMF which is here if you’re interested.
Third verse, same as the first, and second.
Rob’s thoughts on Barefoot Gen is here.
OH YEAH, AND PAT JONEZ
For some reason, Pat Jonez ( Who at this time, had never recorded nor been on a podcast) wormed his way into the panel by way of his contribution to the MMF. He almost yolked the episode with his amatureness, but thankfully for everyone, that was not the case. But Pat was given his first taste of podcasting, the consequences of which we may not know for years. But we’ll tell you this, You give an amateur an inch, and they’ll go a mile.
