On this episode we discuss Paranoia Agent, a trippy anime series by Satoshi Kon about a city pushed to its limits by the widespread panic caused by a serial assailant. Only known as Lil’ Slugger, the juvenille assailant attacks a number of people throughout Musashino, Tokyo. But it is the paranoia that sets in around the city that causes damage in new and bigger ways to the point where people question if Lil’ Slugger is even real.
The Whatnauts Podcast was the original podcast that we launched here at The Whatnauts. It was a weekly book club style show covering everything from comics to television shows, movies, anime, and more. Today, The Whatnauts Podcast is now known as The Review Show. We rebooted it, rebranded it, and gave it a nice little spit shine to make it sparkle.
