TangleCast 40: Birth of the Tangles

This week on the TangleCast, Team Anchester, anchored (and followed-up…and written…and produced…and all other things…) by Matthew, asks the question: How exactly did Beneath the Tangles get to where it is today? The site’s founder, TWWK (Charles), joins him to regale the listeners with tales of old (hey, eight years is a pretty long time in aniblogging) and gives some hints as to where the website might be heading in the future.

And we want your feedback as well! Each week we’ll ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers the next time that team rolls around. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question): What is one thing that you appreciate about what we do at Beneath the Tangles? Is there anything we’ve done before that you’d like to see again? Is there anything you wish we did that we haven’t? 

I know that’s more than one question, technically, but it should provide you plenty of ways to respond. And we do so very much appreciate your responses!

Check us out on iTunes or through our RSS Feed! And as mentioned in the episode, here are links to our Patreon and Ko-Fi accounts, as well as to the job posting article.

Matthew G

Matthew G is interested in things. Many of them anime-related. He’s also trying todevelop a taste for manga as time allows. Since his start as a long-winded, scatter-brained hobby blogger two years ago, Matthew has become the swashbuckler-in-chief for Team Anchester of the TangleCast, where he can be found taking shonen far too seriously, staring squinty-eyed at modern culture, and harping on the supremacy of God. So, like, your grandpa + anime.

  1. Is it cheating to say “one of the things that [I] appreciate about what [you] do at Beneath the Tangles” is that you post articles I write? ;P

    More seriously, BtT is a place for “talking” with other Christians who like thinking about anime. The internet has many anime-related sites, and many Christian-related sites, but BtT is a unique place where the two come together. Since finding BtT earlier this year, I’ve read articles that challenged me, received excellent responses to comments I made, learned of excellent anime I might otherwise never have known about or tried, and carried on lengthy Twitter conversations with BtT staff members. It’s been quite a blessing to me.

    It’s almost like being able to discussion a common interest with people of shared faith is edifying or something. *cough* “As iron sharpens iron…” *cough* 😉

  2. From Tyler (FB): I enjoy the introspection and honesty in BTT. I don’t get a sense of vain-glorification from the articles that might show up in a more heavily ideological site intent on persuasion rather than one that seeks to impart and grow wisdom in its audience being both inward and outward looking.

    I’d like to see a community night in a chat room or community game to get to know fellow readers and writers more.
