Hate to be that guy but unless I missed something, you guys forgot to mention the 2017 History of Japan Fuji TV Special (Dragon Ball, One Piece, Kochikame and Chibi Maruko)

Worth noting (to my surprise!) that this is a rare DB publication without furigana.
Though the kanji usage looks light, so it's still obviously geared toward child readers.

Small tidbit; the little Podcast box on the right side of the main site is still for the Fu episode!

I know I'm a bit late at catching up on the podcast, but you guys mentioned the censoring of the DB portion of the manga returning with the SJ edition of the manga, but that's not true...well, not entirely.
The first edition print of the SJ Release of the manga kept the nudity, middle fingers, and some of the dialogue was more suggestive. It was only in later printings that it was changed. Even the Z material used Damn, Hell, and Bastard on occasion before reverting to softer language in future printings, though it always kept the nudity out like you said.
I just rechecked a few of my volumes to make sure before posting (I was certain, but it didn't hurt to do the minimal amount of effort should my memory be playing tricks on me).
There's a reason why I've kept my old copies of the manga, it's only with Full Color have I started getting new material, as I like the addition of full color (just wish it could get a new translation).
