Dusting off the podcast…


By Shawn Robare




Well, with all the podcasting I’ve been doing lately with the newly revamped Saturday Supercast, I got the bug to dust off the Branded in the 80s podcast as well.  Don’t know how regularly I’ll put one of these out, but it was fun to record just the same.


Basically I spend around 50 minutes talking about some of my general thoughts on cartoons.   Filmation, Hanna Barbera, animation cels, a deconstructive/critical eye towards cartoons, Action for Children’s Television, and why you might want to listen to the Saturday Supercast.  I also threw in a bunch of cartoon theme songs (under the main conversation of the podcast), as well as the majority of the one Kidd Video studio album.

    Great cast. Can’t wait for Mrs. McFavorite to listen to it. Maybe she’ll listen to you when it comes to cartoons/animation. She refuses to watch any old school cartoons. She never even watched them as a kid. She does love the Sunday Fox block. She enjoys Robot Chicken finally, even though she doesn’t get a lot of the animation reference. She calls all of my fabulous box sets “”by yourself time”". Great to hear your solo voice again…Slick
