Great story analysis as always
Great great series, dissecting pieces of common pop culture, Pixar films. I came at this after listening to Alastair's Star Wars series, so I was familiar with the concept of analyzing the story independent of the love or experience. Wall-E went a little off the rails with Lani's disgust with the film overpowering any analytical discussion. Some of the subsequent casts got more on track but the tone broke a little there. However, just like with Pixar, the magic was strong enough to get me through and I felt enriched for the journey. Just as with all StoryWonk podcasts, I am left excited and interested in what comes next!
Great, but still waiting for Inside Out
I am addicted to basically every StoryWonk Podcast out there, hence I was ecstatic when I saw that “Lannister” did a whole series about the Pixar Movies. The only problem, now I need one about Inside Out!!
I really enjoy listening to Alistair and Lani discuss stories! Glad I found these Pixar Sessions. Interesting viewpoints and entertaining to listen to!
