Two moms review the TV and movies made for their kids.
Ep103 Raya and the Last Dragon
We’re so excited to review yet another new release movie! Join us as we dissect the latest entry into the Disney princess canon: Raya and the Last Dragon. Is this whole movie an apology to Kelly Marie Tran? Are Falcor, the luck dragon, and Sisu, the titular “last dragon,” secretly siblings? In Screen Time in the News, we discuss a new entry coming to Disney Plus, helmed by Ron Moore of Battlestar Galactica and Outlander fame. Can he make us care about the Society of Explorers and Adventurers?
Ep102 Black Beauty
We are joined by Jess of the Only You: A One and Done Podcast to discuss the latest adaptation of a beloved story of an only child and her horse, Black Beauty. The Disney Plus retelling foregrounds female characters and gives the classic tale a modern twist. Is it enough to make this nineteenth century tale resonate with your hardened hosts?
Ep101 100th Episode Celebration
Join us as we discuss how making 100 episodes of the podcast has changed how we approach screen time with our kids and in our grown up lives. To celebrate, we introduce a new segment - Lightning Round - in which we give bite-sized reviews of Hero Elementary, Finding Ohana, On Pointe, and Gabby’s Dollhouse.
Ep100 Santiago of the Seas
We review Nickelodeon’s newest swashbuckling adventure, Santiago of the Seas. How do we feel about idolizing pirates? Is it enough to call them good pirates, sit back, and admire their cool clothes and catchy slang? We chat with Niki Lopez, the show’s creator, about representation, creating bilingual content, and how to get grown ups interested in a preschool show.
In this episode, we are joined by graphic designer and host of the I’m a Muslim and That’s Okay podcast Shehla Faizi to discuss the latest Pixar blockbuster: Soul. Is the burden of representation too much for the plot to bear? Does the jazz music meet Deborah’s standards? And where could we shoehorn John Cho into the cast? In Screen Time in the News, we discuss our hopes and fears for Common Sense Media’s coming streaming platform: Sensical.
Ep98 Over the Moon
We’re joined by librarian extraordinaire, Katie Kiekhaefer, to discuss Netflix’s animated feature Over the Moon. We celebrate blended families and diversity, wonder whether John Cho would be a good dad, lament our lack of vocal range for sing-alongs, and wish for more Margaret Cho and Awkwafina in our lives. In Screen Time in the News, we discuss an Undefeated article about 2020’s strides for blackness in animation.
