Right-o! Put three fujojos in a room and they talk about pr0n. Even in a skype chatroom.
For the 801 MMF, I’m happy to share some time with Anne Lee from Chic Pixel and Jocelyne Allen from Brain vs. Book to talk about something close to our hearts: Boy’s Love Manga
Anne Lee’s translated a number of titles for DMG and she’s currently doing her PhD on Boy’s Love. Jocelyne Allen is also a translator for Sublime but she’s got a roster of BL titles under her belt. On the other hand, I’m just a BL fan. lol. Well, Anne and I move around the same academic BL circles, so we get around.
Either way, for this podcast, we’re doing an overview of BL and prattle on about sound effects in BL and all that jazz!
