This podcast has feelings
There’s countless podcast about cinema but not many that focus specifically on animations. Well, this is a stellar one. And not just among cartoon focused podcasts but a a great example of how any cinema podcast could be. That is, it’s not just another podcast with shallow reviews or reaction to upcoming movies, but an in depth discussion that gives historical context (both personal and otherwise) for the film and also explores the - forgive the pun - feelings that the films in discussion engendered in them that provides a nice personal touch. The hosts have good chemistry and the banter feels natural but never boring. Highly recommended.
I'm falling in love with this podcast!
A charming and whimsical deep dive into movies that don't always get the attention they deserve. It's a great mix of critical analysis, historical anecdotes, and technical insight - all wrapped up in how these movies make us Feel (with a capital F).
Hope they talk about The Black Cauldron to really tap into my childhood memories!
These two know their cartoons! Ira and Caitlin have smart discussions and relatable feelings about animated movies. I really enjoy listening to this podcast. I can’t wait for them to talk about Disney’s Robin Hood!!
