Shojo & Tell: A Manga Podcast

I love this podcast!
Really good podcast about shoujo manga! It goes into detail about the series as well as their thoughts on it. I normally don’t analyze manga, so they have some takes that I never would have thought about. I highly recommend!

Best Shojo manga podcast
I love old school anime but found this podcast to learn about Shojo manga. The episodes with Asher are really funny and so fun to listen to. I have actually never read a Shojo manga before but I love listening to these episodes and get so much out of the summaries.

Also love the analysis of shojo manga through the LGBTQ lens because manga rarely has the best track record of that, and it’s important to hear that voice.Read full review »
