Listen here Download now

One of the most prolific animators in his native Japan and across the globe, Hayao Miyazaki matters, but why tho?

In today’s episode Kate, Adrian, and our guest Stefani talk about the importance of Miyzaki’s work across his 60+ year career in animation. Taking a lot of information from the documentary (Kingdom of Dreams and Madness) about his animation studio, Studio Ghibli, we discuss his successes, his personal life, and how his animation continues to stand out. We discuss the important themes from his work, like equality, environment, and pacifism. Whether you started watching with Nausicaa or Spirited Away or Ponyo, you’ve probably noticed how long the movies run, we explain the powerful reason why. With so much to talk about, we still find time to talk about the fan theories surrounding Miyazaki films.
