Anime Banzai 2012 Podcast Season

Anime Banzai Podcast 2012 Season

Welcome to the Anime Banzai podcast page! We decided to create a podcast in order to better inform people about what will happen at this year's con, to better communicate who our staff is and why we run the convention the way we do, and most importantly, to have fun.

Standard blah-blah (Disclaimer)

The Anime Banzai Podcast is not affiliated with companies, organizations, groups, or blogs other than those represented by Utah Anime Promotions.

Chapters (AKA 'What the heck is an M4B file?')

Episodes with the "M4B" download option include chapters. M4B is known as the audiobook format, and is playable with your iPod/iPhone/iPad or in Windows with VLC, iTunes and other software that can play the audiobook format. Other players may play the file, but will not have chapter support.

Right now only a few episodes have this option, but we may add chapters to our previous episodes later.
