    273 Undone Review

    Undone is the new rotoscoped* show on Amazon dealing with time travel, mental illness, both, and of course relationships personal and family - because what narrative isn't, really. Stephen watched the whole season, Rob watched about half.
    *(it's a broad term, but we talk a lot about the style)

    272 Back It Up

    It's an HBO Max kind of show where we talk through all of (kinda) season 1 of Genndy Tartakovsky's "Primal" and J.G. Quintel's "Close Enough." How engaging is a 30 min series without any dialog? How about a 15 min one with a lot? Will Rob ever get to eat his lunch?

    Last episode we talked about new animated shows, this week we talk about new animation opportunities! And with all that positivity, I get mildly annoyed at the Emmy selection this year and Rob sees it as an opportunity to make me explain why Rick and Morty doesn't thrill me... again. And it works every time.

    There are so many new animated series that have been in production or just got greenlit in this time of covid quarantine, animation is proving itself once again as one of the more creatively and financially stable mediums to get behind.

Best Animation Podcast I Know

I originally learned about Stephen from his YouTube tutorials and learned a lot of tips on creating animated shorts. The podcast features amazing buddy chemistry, lots of laughs and tons of inside information on the animation world. Regularly features thoughtful discussion of life topics, work ethic and really inspiring interviews too.

Come for the podcast and stay for the monthly animation battles!

Sequel

We need a sequel to Song of the sea. There were way too many unanswered questions, cliff hangers and too much potential for them to stop at one movie, believe me!

Fantastic podcast that will make you laugh & be inspired

I'm not an animator but i love listening to Stephen & Rob. Their podcasts are just wonderful. I love how they make me laugh with their conversations and sometimes it's just random. I also love the interviews with great animators that they do. It's very inspiring.
