    Episode 121: Wolfwalkers

    Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 121 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robin and Tracy review the 2020 Irish animated film, Wolfwalkers. Produced by Cartoon Saloon and directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, it follows the story of Robyn, a young English girl living in 1650s Ireland, and her interactions with a feral wolf girl named Mebh living in the neighboring forest. With themes of acceptance, questioning authority and found family, Wolfwalkers is a challenging and moving film with gorgeous animation, well-rounded characters and beautiful music.

    The magical and quirky animated show follows the story of Luz Noceda as she learns to become a witch through the teachings of her curmudgeonly mentor, Eda, and the cuddly megalomaniac, King.
    Join them as they discuss the numerous dunks on the Harry Potter series lore, the inclusion of many fantasy trope subversions and the insatiable energy of the lead character. Who is also a big old bisexual nerd and we love her for it.

    Episode 116: Moomin and the Comet Chase

    Episode 116: Moomin and the Comet Chase

    Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 116 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robin and Tracy review the 2010 stop motion animated film, Moomin and the Comet Chase. Featuring the iconic characters from the classic comic franchise, it follows the last moments before the imminent deaths of Moomin and his folksy counterparts. Not really but man, does it feel like it.
    Join them as they discuss the handmade aesthetic of the animation, Sniff being the WORST and whether a curtain in front of a cave is adequate protection from a comet's impact. These aren't the hard questions, but they're certainly the ones being asked.
    We made the most of this movie (as flawed as it is) and hope you dig this review!

Meekly Sheepling ,

Hello there, Joanna!

I've discovered them back in 2016- they are still a riot! I started to take the podcasts on the go while I work and listening to reviews for films I finally watched. Still find them very hilarious and very detailed with their research, I'm always down to listen to chill all the way to passionately (and/or angry) reviews on animated films. Keep up the good work, guys!

Great animation podcast

I think this is a great podcast all around for fans of animation. Tracy and Robbie have fun lighthearted and insightful discussions that are well paced and produced. I'm only a few episodes in but I wanted to say keep up the good work.

Robbie and Tracy’s passion for animated productions really shines through in this podcast and it makes them a charming and entertaining pair of hosts. Looking forward to future episodes !
