Episode 82: ”Z-O-M-B-I-E-S,” or ”Fighting Segregation”

April 26, 2022

In this Disney Channel "West Side Story" meets "High School Musical" with zombies, after decades of segregation, zombies are integrated into a human high school, but still face oppression. In the meantime, a zombie and a human girl with a secret fall in love. Today we learn to be true to ourselves, embrace each other's differences, and that instead of erasing the history of racial segregation, we should learn from it so it never happens again.

Please note that this episode was recorded BEFORE Disney stuck it to the Florida governor.

April 19, 2022

Yet another French fairy tale of a woman who finds herself entangled with a rich man of an unusual appearance. Except this beastly yet kind master has a dark, terrible secret.

March 28, 2022

WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SWEARING, AND MENTIONS OF GRAPHIC VIOLENCE, DEATH AND SUICIDE. LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!

Featuring probably one of the most unique relationships I've ever had to analyze on this podcast, we take a look at "Angels of Death," a horror adventure game made into a manga and anime, about a 13-year-old girl who makes an unlikely alliance with a scythe-wielding serial killer as they both escape a building full of murderous psychopaths. Today we learn that we are responsible for our own actions, not to use God as an excuse for our misdeeds, and that even psychopathic killers can find kindred spirits.

Episode 75: ”The Cat Returns,” or ”Trusting Yourself”

February 28, 2022

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, we look at Studio Ghibli's "The Cat Returns," a peculiar little spinoff of "Whisper of the Heart," featuring a clumsy high-school girl who after saving a cat, is in danger of marrying one against her will, and so she seeks help from a charming, dapper cat figurine who likes poking his nose into other people's business. Today we learn the importance in trusting oneself, not to let others define your worth, and that you have the right to crush on any kind of cat you want (huh?).

Episode 73 (Valentine’s Day Special): ”Belle,” or ”Hiding Our Pain Behind a Mask”

February 7, 2022

WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MENTIONS OF TRAUMA AND CHILD ABUSE! LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!

We've seen modern interpretations of "Beauty and the Beast" before, but never taking place in a virtual reality. Studio Chizu's anime film "Belle" tells the story of a shy high school girl who lives a double life as virtual singing sensation Belle. One day, she encounters a beastly avatar called the Dragon, and finds that through his anger, he is experiencing the same pain as her. Today we learn that everyone hides behind a mask of some kind, and that the power of the internet should not be abused.
