Odd Taxi was a beautiful anime that got me thinking a lot about ‘society’. What exactly makes a society? What is it that we all share as people? All these questions have been swimming in my brain for quite a while now, which is why I wanted to take on this anime for this week’s podcast. From conceptualising society as a connected whole to the desire to connect with our fellow man, lets discuss this pretty profound topic in Episode 98 of Get In The Mecha.
