 Rated A for A-OK for all audiences.


Episode #48 in the Next 100 Project series takes us to a mystical fantasy world in Japan. Hayao Miyazaki’s well-loved animated opus was a Godzilla-level hit. It remains as fascinating and moving as it was 15 years ago. Go get your Sparkplug Coffee and then soak in our final January podcast.
