Episode notes

Studio Ghibli’s GKIDS has a new film out about a little girl who just wants her mom to cook her a really specific dinner. If that sounds like not quite enough for a movie to be about, then you haven’t seen CHICKEN FOR LINDA! We’ve got returning guest, film critic Carlos Aguilar, on to join the conversation, and we’re even pitching some childhood memories of our own that could become future features.

Ify – Matthew Lillard’s D&D whiskey (Quest’s End), ren faire costume


  1. Participant Media closing up shop
