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.
This episode of WTS is all about the Studio Ghibli classic: Totoro! In this episode we talk about environmentalism, ignoring the rules of narrative structure, and why Granny should not be your childcare role model.
