Say Hello To Black Jack
Listen to Episode One – A Day Interns Night
What is 'Say Hello to Black Jack'?
Black Jack ni Yoroshiku (also known as 'Give My Regards to Black Jack') received an 'Award of Excellence in Manga' at the 6th Japan Media Arts Festival in 2002. Due to complications with the publisher, Shūhō Satō moved his work into the public domain, giving anyone permission to use his work in any way they see fit. In 2016, the Nerd Fountain crew set out to make an audioplay worthy of Satō's work. Here's to hoping Sensei notices us. ;)

Auditions for Season Two
The Internet was down for three days. It’s no fun when that happens, but luckily Say Hello to Black Jack was saved to my computer on pdfs, and I took this opportunity to slam out the rest of the scripts for Season Two. Fifteen scripts is a tricky proposition. Season one contained five episodes, Read more about 15 Scripts for Season Two: Complete[…]
The First Forty-Five Days—How Does Our Audience Add Up? According to Libsyn, “The median number of downloads for an episode that has been live for 30 to 60 days is around 160.” The key word here is ‘median’. Libsyn is talking about the average show, not the average number of downloads. Otherwise, shows in Read more about So Who’s Listening To This Podcast, Anyway?[…]
When I first started this project, I could only find 23 issues of Say Hello to Black Jack translated into English. Episode 23 ends abruptly. But I knew Shuho Sato experienced problems with his publisher, and chose to go to a different magazine to publish a continuation of his manga called ‘The New Say Read more about I Just Hit the Motherload[…]
I’ve been poking at Reddit for the last two weeks, learning how to promote the podcast without being a nuisance. For years, I tried convincing myself that I should be an active part of the community, so if something important like SH2BJ came up, I could promote it, and people will listen. I should listen to myself Read more about Learning to Reddit[…]
Added ‘Say Hello to Black Jack’ to every podcast directory I could find. Maybe thirty total? That’s a day’s work unto itself. The first couple of hours were spent dealing with iHeartRadio, Stitcher, and TuneIn. Well worth my time. By the time I got to hour four, however, I was scraping through potentially dead servers to add Read more about All the Directories[…]
I just sent out information about the audioplay and this website to every anime news site, nerd news site, and audio drama news site I could find. Also a couple of Japanese news networks that initially posted about Shuho Sato releasing his work, so I contacted them with a ‘follow-up story’. I also found a Read more about All the news sources[…]
I’m updating this page shortly. But for now, here’s the links! iTunes YouTube SoundCloud And Patreon!
SH2BJ Episode 1 is now uploaded to Libsyn, iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud, this website, and Patreon. Dang, that’s a lot of work to post one episode (YouTube/Patreon also required Movie Maker to turn an audio file into a video) and I haven’t even rung the social media bell yet. I would also like to put this on Google Read more about All the Platforms[…]
Technically, the podcast is live, and you can listen to it right now. But I’m waiting a week to advertise it, since not everything is lined up yet. iTunes needs to validate the account, for one thing, and I don’t want to tell people to ‘Go check it out on iTunes!’ if it isn’t there.
