Anime Sickos: A podcast for geniuses exploring the four pillars of modern misery: anime, gaming, posting, and jobs.

Jul 28, 2023

The Anime Sickos present: Sicko Shock 2 - A Miniseries in Six Episodes.


In the year 42069, humanity survives in the last livable place on Earth: the domed cyberpunk dystopia Sicko City. In Sicko City, all citizens are required to jack in to cyberspace every day to view and engage with content generated by “Posters,” mega-celebrities who live like gods. But beneath its shimmering surface, five forgotten people are about to make history...

Tor Client is a shaper. On their pirate streams, Tor evangelizes the revolutionary potential of the Internet. But how much transfiguring freedom is there on a platform that exists solely for state-mandated Posting? It’d take some kind of divine revelation for Tor to fully understand the potential of their ideology...
