Oldtaku no Radio # 036 – Oldtaku no Oddities

If you don’t remember MTV back in the ’90s, when it was 98% music and 1% Kurt Loder, then you definitely don’t remember the other 1% – the ballsy, experimental animated shorts of Liquid Television and the longer, more serial (but not any less weird) shorts of the Oddities animation programming block. Join Jared and Ink as they reflect upon their teenage cartoon obsessions by talking about Liquid Television’s Aeon Flux as well as The Head and The Maxx from MTV’s Oddities after a fresh rewatch of all three! And to mark our three-year anniversary as a podcasting duo, Jared and Ink reminisce about the past year as well as the two before that. So grateful to have you(r ears). Now press play already!

    • Jared Nelson's profile

      Jared discovered anime in the early 1990s through stacks of third-hand fandubs and Streamline Pictures tapes. By the tender age of 16, he was humming Macross 7 songs in art class, dreaming of Asuka Langley and hanging Rurouni Kenshin posters on his wall. A few years later he moved to Japan where he worked as an ALT (assistant language teacher) in Ibaraki and Fukuoka Prefectures. While he returned home with a deep appreciation for Japan, its culture, and its public transit system, Jared fell out of anime fandom and only returned in 2010. A self-proclaimed 3rd-level bard, Jared enjoys tabletop gaming and game design, video gaming, giant robots, history, comics, and most recently manga. He is also eternally late to the party.
