As part of the migration process from one site to this new site I'm re-posting the first 11 episodes here and will eventually only post here the show notes for the Final Stage Podcast. This is a re-post from Rambling Rican - July, 2015.
Graphic for Episode3
Thanks to William for adding graphics of a synopsis of the episode content for this month on Final Stage Podcast! I'm also happy to announce that this and all of our previous podcasts are now officially up on iTunes and on the hosting site of Podbean.

SPOILERS - Note that this was taped AFTER the Sasuke 31 airing and as such we talk about spoilers in the show. As usual I did a massive picture blog on the Rambling Rican site so if you haven't seen it you can always read the multi-part Sasuke 31 blog. I haven't yet, please wait to hear the podcast until after you see (or read about) Sasuke 31.
