Said guests include, Jared from Oldtaku no Radio, Drew from Akihabara Renditions, as well as Bonus Doug and Jeff! … From, well, they were in the room so good for them! Being in a room!

Protip: This was recorded in a hotel room at 3AM+ in the morning, so the the audio is not always the best. That’s mostly due to the whole hotel room thing, though!

OSMcast! Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward 1-11-2016



Huh. So… It’s 2016, huh? Man, how time flies!

Especially when you are playing Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, the amazing expansion to that MMO we here at the OSMcast has been horribly addicted to! In honor of our addiction, please have a podcast all about it.


Don’t worry! Our podcast New Year’s Resolution for 2016 is to get back into the swing of things. For real this time. We are gonna podcast like it’s 2014!

Until then, have some cues.

OSMcast! The Indie Video Games of Momocon 2015 10-26-2015



So speaking of Momocon, this was the first year where they really blew up their video gaming to something truly huge. Something special. they called it the MGX, or Momocon Gaming Experience. Not only was there tons of tabletop gaming to be had, or console gaming, or even an arcade, as they had all of these things. But what Momocon also had, was an indies space for video games. And along with our pals from Chainsaw Buffet, we played almost all of them.

These are those stories. As recorded late at night during some night at Momocon.


GOOD GRAVY there were a bunch of games at Momocon this year! Frankly, I have no idea how those actual video game sites cover even bigger shows like E3! Wait, I think they get paid though… huh. Oh well! Of course, thanks to the Chainsaw Boys for helping us cover all these games! But you did not come here for this part of the OSMnotes, clearly. What you want, are those Time Cues:

That… was a lot of links. Please, go click on them! Find something new to play! And bug the wonderful C63 folks to make that sweet sweet train game I know is secretly in their hearts.

Next time, something fresh off the microphone! We are kicking a few ideas around. If you have any ideas of topics of things to cover, feel free to hit up Basil on Twitter. Or Kevin! Or hey, even the OSMcast account itself. We are not picky.

OSMinterview! Greg Weisman @ Momocon 2015



Long time, no podcast? Well, let’s fix that! We’re going to start with an OSMinterview we did with Greg Weisman during this year’s Momocon along with the Chainsaw Buffet podcast.

Greg Weisman was one of the co-creators of Disney animated series Gargoyles, and also worked on Young Justice, as well as Star Wars Rebels. We talk to him about all those things, but we also chatted about his books Rain of the Ghosts, as well as it’s sequel book Spirits of Ash and Foam.


Firstly, big thanks to both Greg Weisman and Momocon for making the interview possible. You should all check out his books! Basil sure did, and will probably report back in on those soon enough. Secondly, hi we’re back! And we even have a second episode being prepped for next week! So that’s exciting.

OSMinterview! Tiffany Grant @ MTAC 15 to Life



In our second interview of the MTAC 15 to Life Series, we had the wonderful chance to chat with Tiffany Grant. While best known for her role in Neon Genesis Evangelion, as Asuka, she has also been a ton of other roles! From as early as Kome Sawaguchi in Blue Seed (1996), to even Lune from The World God Only Knows (2015), Tiffany Grant is one of the most decorated Voice Over Artists around.

So it was extremely thrilling to gotten to have talked with. About all sorts of things, from Hello Kitty, to speaking German, to Hello Kitty some more. Possibly while speaking German. Oh, and some things about voice acting in anime, too. Sure. This happened at MTAC 15 to Life, in a press conference style sort of the affair along with the Chainsaw Buffet and some other wonderful folks. Please, have a listen.


We have switched hosting! The OSMcast is now powered by simplecast.fm. What this means is that in May/June we will be switching RSS feeds! So if you would like to switch your RSS now, that might make things easier for the future!

That said, we have been able to switch it already over at Sticher. They’re good folks, that Sticher. In fact, if you use Sticher, could you leave us a review? It would be most appreciated!

OSMcast! Steven Universe, Season One 5-18-2015



Sometimes, you just gotta talk about cartoons. And in this latest, greatest episode of the OSMcast, we do just that! This is the episode where we talk about Rebecca Sugar’s and Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe. It’s a show about a boy and his three awesome magical moms. Or aunts. Or, something. It’s pretty great.

We also remissness about that MMO we are always playing, as well as MTAC (next year they’re going 16-bit!), video games, and some silly piece of cloth that Doug adores but will never let anyone ever see. Ever.


Wow! Honestly we had no clue it’s been so long since we did a normal, everyday podcast about a thing we thought was awesome. Thankfully, Steven Universe is pretty amazing, so that works. In other news, Basil was recently on an episode of GME Anime Fun Time, talking about some Redline. It was pretty fun, as Redline is incredible fun and very easy to talk about.

Speaking of talking and things that are fun, we’ll be at Momocon! Well, Basil and Kevin shall be. Not only that,but we’ll be present a slew of panels. A slew! Like… four or five of them. Enough we may just have a post just about that itself. Basil will have to work on that.

Also, we have switched hosting! The OSMcast is now powered by simplecast.fm. What this means is that in May/June we will be switching RSS feeds! So if you would like to switch your RSS now, that might make things easier for the future!
