    The AFA Podcast 146: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse [Commentary]

    The AFA Podcast 146: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse [Commentary]

    Well, hello there! Can you believe The AFA Podcast is five years old this summer? We decided we needed to do something pretty special to mark this occasion. And what better way than by talking about one of our favourite films released in this podcast's lifetime (but somehow didn't managed to do a full episode on yet)? We were able to get the full original crew (as heard on the first episode) for the first time in a while- Rachael, Chris, Dan and Yvonne are all here! The film in question is none other than the Oscar-winning, game-changing dimension-hopping, web-swinging Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. 
     
    We decided to do it as a commentary episode, so to get the most out of it feel free to watch along with us! After a short introduction, the discussion starts (and you can start the movie) after the countdown. Obviously, this episode is rather spoiler heavy, and contains some NSFW language. Here's to the next five years!

    Episode 143: A Whisker Away

    Episode 143: A Whisker Away

    This week The AFA Podcast, the original recipe is back, and Rachael, Chris and Dan are all here for the first time in quite a while! What brought us together? We came together to discuss the latest animated movie to hit Netflix, A Whisker Away from Studio Colorido and writer Mari Okada.
    The whole episode is dedicated to our discussion on the feline-themed film (with a few tangents, naturally) but we talk in quite a lot of detail about the film. If you haven't seen it yet, we'd recommend waiting until you have, although we do give a warning before we discuss the film's later acts.
    If you love fantasy anime and especially if you love cats- don't miss out on this charming film!

    The AFA Gaming Pod 7.0: Playstation 5 [or "We love backpack cat!"]

    The AFA Gaming Pod 7.0: Playstation 5 [or "We love backpack cat!"]

    We are back with another episode of the AFA Gaming Podcast, the podcast about games and the animation that brings them to life. This time, Rachael and Chris got together (virtually) to talk about the recent unveiling of the PlayStation 5 and the games that were shown off.
     
    The games shown had a wide variety of animation styles and gameplay styles, but among our most anticipated titles were Stray, Horizon Forbidden West,  Spider-Man: Miles Morales and  Kena: Bridge Of Spirits.  Not featured in the presentation, we also had some bonus chat about Assasin's Creed Valhalla, and Rachael recommends the new Nintendo Switch version of The Wonderful 101. Game on!
     
    [Note: due to an issue with one of the mics we usually use, the show sounds a bit different, but hopefully it's not too noticeable!]

    Saturday Morning Cartoon Club #2: Gargoyles

    Saturday Morning Cartoon Club #2: Gargoyles

    Saturday Morning Cartoon Club is AFA's retro podcast dedicated to our favourite cartoons from our childhood- or occasionally modern cartoons that still give us that classic Saturday morning feeling. We've done a couple of episodes before, but now we hope to make them more regularly. And what better place to start than with Disney's Gargoyles, now it's finally available streaming on Disney Plus.
     
    Big kids Rachael and Chris talk about their memories of the show and discuss the opening 5 episode Arc Awakening, how it compares to the rest of the Disney Afternoon line-up and our hopes for a revival. So grab your favourite cereal, jump on the sofa and join us as we return to the Age Of The Gargoyles!
