About Wensleydale Cheddar

Welcome, welcome, welcome, dear all. I'm your stammering sentient twink of cheese, Wensleydale Cheddar. You might be wondering, how could a sentient twink of cheese possibly host two Z-grade podcasts about Japanese comics *and* a series of video essays? Well, they said it couldn't be done, but I proved them wrong!

My main show is currently Duckface Diaries: our monthly retrospective podcast on the long-running sci-fi Shonen Jump manga World Trigger. Come join HovinwithanH and I on our underdog adventure through tactical battles and Ashihara's deadpan comedy as we recap the manga and discuss its themes, character dynamics and story structure!


Manga Mosaic is the series of podcasts and video essays where me and multiple guests take a look at a variety of manga, often from a leftist political angle. In the podcast edition we usually talk about new series and one-shots in Shonen Jump, such as this piece on the Death Note one-shot and how the framing of Trump has often been misinterpreted in it.


On the video essay side, my proudest long-form projest is Cross Account Is Hot Garbage and Here's Why, an in-depth dive into an incel manga and the Shonen Jump editorial staff's general boys' club attitude towards women.


This process of mangathirstquenching can be quite time-consuming and costly, but your support could keep the podcastmaking going! It would cover my livingexpensespaying while giving me time to do some scriptwriting! If you decide on patronbecoming and moneypledging, you can expect a lot of my gratitudeexpressing!

...Yes.

You can expect at least one podcast to be released every month, plus a long-form video essay every time we hit a Patreon goal (Patrons choose which one). You can listen to our shows on Youtube, plus pretty much every podcasting sites. So come join us on our journey, and as always, remember to trigger on and bugger off!
