A poet once said, "Digimon—digital monsters—Digimon are the champions." We've all heard this at some point in our lives—some would claim it's even common knowledge. And yet studies have shown that most adults suffer from a measurable lack of in-depth critical analysis of Digimon. Don't let your loved ones suffer. That's where Podigious comes in.

Podigious is your critically nostalgic, analytical tour through the Digimon anime. We rewatch the show and then discuss it arc by arc, giving our discussions more depth than season reviews and more perspective than episodic reviews. We approach the show critically—by discussing the show's strengths and weaknesses—and analytically—by exploring the show's various themes, morals, and social implications. We also have plenty of fun pointing out the English dub's most absurd lines or ranting about baffling plot holes and inconsistencies. 

We've already finished covering the first three seasons of Digimon, Adventure (with Tai, Agumon, and friends), Adventure 02 (with Davis, Veemon, and friends), and Tamers (with Takato, Guilmon, and friends). If you want to check out episodes about a particular part of the show you still remember, you can easily listen to just one or two podcasts (remember the Elvis impersonator in a bear suit? or the world tour of vaguely racist stereotypes?). We also make extensive visual notes for each episode on our website that will help if you hear us mention names that sound vaguely familiar buried under years and years of memories.

We started this podcast as a labor of love, but there's lots of stuff we've always wanted to do and we're looking to Patreon as a way to finally make those ideas a reality.

We're currently covering Digimon Frontier (the 4th season), which we're really excited about. We'd love to have you along with us for a ride on the Trailmon. We're also covering the Digimon Adventure Tri movies as they come out.

This level will cover the costs of producing and hosting the podcast, so we can finally stop trying to pay our hosting bills with digi-dollars.
