Extremely Uncomfortable Racial Politics (Atlantis: the Lost Empire)

Podcasts.com iTunes - Stitcher - Spotify


This week we take on our first ever piece of Western animation and Ian reveals that they know more about Disney than previously thought. A favorite from our childhood, we see if Disney's Atlantis holds up, has mechs, and also there's like a Confederate loyalist in this movie. We talk about stylistic differences between American and Japanese animation, storytelling, and influences. Finally, Ian goes on a prolonged rant about Disney's pathological aversion to risk.

Taking the Spectral High Ground (Vision of Escaflowne 4/4)

Podcasts.com iTunes - Stitcher - Spotify


It's the last six episodes of Vision of Escaflowne and they manage to cram like twelve episodes of plot in there. We try to break down the various twists (of varying quality) as well as meditate on exactly how annoyed we are by the final pairings. Also, once again, Ian gets mad about time travel.

That Twink from Atlantis (Vision of Escaflowne 3/4)

Podcasts.com iTunes - Stitcher - Spotify


Escaflowne really gets moving this week as we uncover the identity of the villain, find new allies, and have eight back-to-back dream sequences. We talk through the revelations of the plot, Dryden's extreme chad energy, and also the increasingly complicated (and compelling) romance plot.
