Podcaster / Blogger
Dawn (aka "Usamimi") is the producer and host of The Anime Nostalgia Podcast! A fan of anime since the 80s, her podcast is a mix of waxing nostalgic with fellow older fans while introducing younger fans to older titles they've never heard of! Her podcast also serves as an oral history of otakudom before things like streaming and social media were commonplace. She loves to highlight how anime & manga has always been a diverse fandom, and can be enjoyed by anyone. Being a long-time fan, she's used her knowledge to write for outlets like Anime News Network and Crunchyroll, and has helped on multiple anime releases from AnimEigo and Discotek Media. You can listen to her podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.
