Episode 10. Mystical Miyazaki Feat. Hayden Chauffe

In our first exclusively animation episode, friend of the podcast Hayden Chauffe joins Alex to talk about three films by Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki: My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Spirited Away (2001), and The Wind Rises (2013). We discuss the unique possibilities of animation, children’s entertainment that doesn’t sugar coat the world, and reflection of Miyazaki’s life in his films.
