episode 40: Red Planet Requiem ft. Sean Cummings

Are you trying to #SaveBebop? Hoping for #MoreBebop?? There's a canonical (Netflix) Cowboy Bebop prequel novel available RIGHT NOW! We're pausing our live-action watch through to visit Red Planet Requiem: A Syndicate Story. Though he couldn't be in the studio with us, author Sean Cummings forwarded answers to some of our burning questions. We share them, this week, along with our review. Praise! Gripes! Thirst! It's all here, book lovers.



episode 39: Darkside Tango ft. Anneke Botha

Darkside Tango takes us through the moody, jazz-filled alleyways of Jet Black's past, but just how well does it uphold the stories of Udai and Fad? One of the brilliant cowfolks behind this noir-inspired world is Set Decorator Anneke Botha. The Bebop is the love of her life; we can't wait for you to hear how the team built our favorite ship from the guts of a real-life fishing trawler!



episode 38: Callisto Soul ft. Naomi Markman

We're back with the perfect episode for anyone whose New Year's Resolution is "going green!" Callisto Soul puts a tree-hugging twist on an old fave. We welcome Script Coordinator Naomi Markman, one of Cowboy Bebop's freshest voices, to unravel why Maria Murdock and her "children" are more relevant than ever.



episode 37: Dog Star Swing ft. Charlie the Corgi and Friends

Whether you prefer Betty's Boop or Betty's Bottom, we can all agree: The best part of Dog Star Swing is Ein! We analyze the episode top to, um, bottom, before welcoming the Charlie the corgi, the brightest star in Cowboy Bebop. As much as we love Charlie's barks and woofs, we are also thankful for his human mum, Steph, and his trainer, Rosie, for tagging along.
