Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
On this episode of WTS we talk about Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle. We cover old age, pacifism, and storytelling conventions.
This is our 98th episode. That means that in just two episodes we’ll be at 100! We’d love to read and respond to feedback on that 100th episode. If you have questions or anything you’d like us to talk about be sure to let us know soon! Enjoy!
