Princess Mononoke - Podcast

Princess Mononoke - Podcast

For some reason I let Andrew talk me into watching the 1997 (or 1999 if you only believe in the USA) anime masterpiece Princess Mononoke. At least Holly joined us so it wasn't a complete waste of time. See below the audio stream for show notes.

You can listen to the episode on iTunes, your favorite podcatcher, or right here.

1. Intro Text Card: "In ancient times, the land lay covered in forests, where from ages long past, dwelt the spirits of the gods. Back then, man and beast lived in harmony. But as time went by, most of the great forests were destroyed. Those that remained were guarded by gigantic beasts, who owed their allegiances to the Great Forest Spirit. For those were the days of gods—and of demons."
