 What is Friendship! Effort! Victory!? – It’s a podcast examining the ongoing history of Shueisha’s 45-year old comics anthology Weekly Shonen Jump, and the hundreds of titles it has published over that period of time, placing each of them under the spotlight and looking at what they were, what happened, what they meant, and if they’re actually worth reading.

What is Cowa!? – Cowa! is Akira Toriyama’s first weekly work after he concluded Dragon Ball, telling us the story of three monsters and a sumo wrestler with a dark past travelling across the country to get a cure for the flu that’s affecting the monsters’ village. It’s super cute.
