Episode 74 of Key Frames, a podcast about anime. Come in, have a glass of barley tea, and sit with us next to the fan. It's another scorcher of a day, one in a series that never seems to end, but eventually this summer of pandemics, unemployment, and anime will be over and we'll all have to go back to school. In the meantime, enjoy the sounds of Andy practicing the recorder out on the porch. Once he's done, we'll find Ben and Duncan and get snacks from the corner store.
