Extra Jam 5 – Comics Everybody (65.5)

Dennis gets Adam, Garrett, and J to return for our off-topic podcast, wherein we discuss a lot of comic book TV shows and movies. We even revisit Blade II. This episode was recorded before the super big Marvel movie reveal, so a lot of the speculation has been debunked. But we still have fun with it anyway. Oh, and add a little bit of Korra talk. Then we end it with some videogames and fitness. Read more


Extra Jam 2 – Holi-dazed (Episode 53.5)

Recorded during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, Dennis and Kate are joined by fellow talky buds returning for another Extra Jam episode as we go over random things, like anime, One Piece, games, movies, One Piece, TV shows, and did I mention One Piece? Head past the breakdown for all of the talking points. There are a lot. Happy 2014 folks! Read more


Episode 34 – Western Genshiken: Vendors’ Edition

In our final segment regarding Western media (for now, at least), we take a look at the business side of the equation with help from our guests Reggie, owner of Power Anime, and Amy from Viz Media. The increasing presence of Western media has a direct effect for both our guests’ business, so their opinions are quite unique for our podcast. And stick around for the end, too, as our guests are in for a surprise question lightning round involving this topic. See how many you could get! Episode 34 is a go!

Episode 24 – Comikaze Excelsior!

Cosplay Jam Album Cover

Join us with special guest, friend, and listener Gustavo (aka Garp Stavo Sauce) as we talk about all the good and bad of Stan Lee’s personal convention. Episode 24 is a go!

Episode 10 – Start the Year with ALA

Welcome to our Anime Los Angeles recap episode. It’s out first
convention of the year, yet some consider it the last episode
of their convention season. Come listen to our stories about
the con including our first ever hosted panel (with thanks to
cosplayer Binkx and Jammer from the Animanga Podcast), making
fun of Aaron’s photography skills and Dennis’ skin tone,
general convention thoughts, and of course, the return of the
food talk. And if you missed them, our cosplay pictures are
back on the podcast again. Also, apologies for all the talk
about Francis’ cleavage. We’re sure those Inception sounds
aren’t just in your dreams. And watch out for that spider!

If you went to D*C, hope you had as much fun as we did. And if you didn’t go, hope that this gives you some incentive to go. Enjoy episode 4, Rock the Dragon*Con.

Episode 3 – 2nd Gen Closet

You’re listening to the often delayed episode 3 of the Cosplay Jam “2nd Gen Closet.” With real life taking the reigns over podcasting, our audio quality suffered a bit due to a new attempt at recording. But at least the pictures look much better! We hope you enjoy this stroll down memory lane with Nisei Week from Little Tokyo a few weeks back. And adding to that, we have our first ever normal segment, Cosplay Advice. This episode goes over an intro to using what you have, or what you can easily purchase at a thrift store or general department store at a low cost…at least til the end. Don’t forget to Like us on facebook.com/skcosplay and follow us at twitter.com/skcosplay. For those heading to Dragon*Con on Labor Day weekend, have a safe trip and hope to see you there!


Update 6/6/2012–
We’ve been notified that there was a problem with this episode. It’s been reuploaded and hopefully fixed.
