Site update, current events, and future Podcast plans!

This has been quite the week for S.Link FM, after all the site has now officially been up and active for a week! (Well thereabouts anyways)

We actually got quite a bit of traffic this week, seeing that the podcast was shared all over sites like 4chan, reddit, Penny Arcade, and of course NeoGAF is very encouraging. I’m sure that shidoshi sharing the LGBT diversity episode also helped quite a bit as well, that was probably our best episode to date. Not to mention getting out 2 episodes within 5 days of each other probably helped a bunch too!

So on to the future, currently we have a few ideas for new shows:

  • Exploring the mysticism and philosophy behind the series and the various Persona’s
  • A look at the competitive fighting scene behind P4: Arena with a special guest we have lined up
  • A look at the events in P4: Arena’s story mode and the impact it’s had on the overarching Persona storyline

We’re open to suggestions and requests from the listeners as to what particular topics you’d like to hear us discuss, in fact if there’s something you’d like to come on to the podcast yourself and discuss, then by all means please do! Contacts us by either leaving a comment, tweeting us @SLinkFM, or email us at s.linkfmpodcast@gmail.com. We’re always open to bringing on fellow SMT/Persona fans!

Finally, yes we know the site is not very easy on the eyes currently. Thankfully though, some incredibly talented artist’s working on banners, backgrounds, and show title cards for us.

I’m going to be on vacation for the next week so if I don’t get back to you right away don’t worry about it, in time I will get back to you.

Episode 4: Anime is for Jerks

On episode 4 of S.Link FM, we discuss the various anime adaptions of the Persona franchise. Firstly our panel gives a brief history of our experience with the Anime medium, where we’re pretty all over the place. CJKeats being the Anime connoisseur of the group, and the only one brave enough to watch Persona Trinity Soul. From there we tackle Persona 4: The Animation, and the upcoming Persona 3 movies. Most of the discussion spotlight was on the Persona 4 anime, and our general feelings on how it handled the story, plot, and characters from the game.

Episode 2: Persona 4-2

The S.Link FM podcast returns to speculate upon hopes, dreams, and what little “info” we have about Persona 5. Our guest Inorigo (@Talespun, writer for GameRanx and RPGSite) chimes in with some great points for your consideration. We ask questions about Persona 5’s combat, social link system, dungeons, cell phones, release date and even what console/handheld it might be on. Will our dreams come true or is S.Link FM a place where dreams go to die? You’ll just have to listen and find out!

Episode 1: Enter The TV

In the very first episode of S.Link FM, we decide to start things off a little casually and go over how each of us got into the Persona series. We decided to do this podcast on a whim last night so I apologize if the first episode seems disorganized. Nonetheless, we manage to talk about how great Persona 2 is, how we got into the series, Persona 4 Arena at EVO2013, Persona 5 speculation, and jello’s utilikilt.

Well, it’s about time to say hello!

S.Link FM is a new podcast dedicated to all things related to the critically acclaimed and cult followed Persona series. Created by members of the Persona community from NeoGAF, we intend to go over many topics surrounding the series in each episode. In addition to this, we’ll be inviting a variety of guests and members of the community to join us on future episodes, especially about subjects we feel need to be represented.
