Studio Ghibli films just hit Netflix in Canada so you better believe we are going to do a podcast about one! This week on Talkin’ Tuong, join Tuong and First Time Ghibli Watcher Colleen Wang as Tuong tries to convert Colleen into loving one of the all time anime classics – Princess Mononoke!
Remember that one where Mickey wore the wizard hat, and there were dinosaurs, but also fairies and mermaids, and then a hippo did ballet and also Satan made an appearance? No, that wasn’t a trip, that was Fantasia. Follow us as we try to decipher everything from the film’s abstract sound and imagery to Cupid’s missing butthole (Spoiler: the centaurs have something to do with it).
“I was saying Boo-urns”
Ah The Simpsons. A show which is well regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time purely based on it’s early seasons. While the show is still ongoing and has just completed its 31’st season, the magic of this beloved animated family started to wane somewhere after the first third of it’s total run. That said, at it’s best, The Simpsons in it’s prime has some of the snappiest/most hilarious dialogue, phenomenal visual gags, and the most heartwarming moments in TV history. This week join Tuong La and Attractive Shelbyville Cousins Matt Barrow, Taylor Fleming, and Samantha Leggatt as they ‘Do the Bartman’ while ranking Top 5 Simpsons Episodes!
When you wish upon a star… you notice some pretty weird stuff that you missed as a kid. Listen along this week as we watch everyone’s favorite puppet become a real boy – and talk about how Pinocchio is both exactly how we remembered it, and infinitely more terrifying.
This week on Talkin’ Tuong, join Tuong and Quest Friend Forever/Heroes Don’t Do Paperwork’s/Thanos-Wannabe Angus MacDonald, as they examine the series of misfortunes of criminals being stuck in a house of even worse criminals while chatting about 2019’s horror comedy – Villains (now streaming on Amazon Prime).
This week on Talkin’ Tuong, we go on a grand visit to a beloved 6 season show that got itself a movie with 2019’s Downton Abbey (now streaming on Crave). Join Tuong and Quarantine Buddy/Life Pal Laura Gordon (Disney Dummies) as one of them gets to revisit a familiar and juicy dramatic world they enjoy, and the other tries to figure out why everyone in this movie is so horny for English royalty.
Comedy movies in the 2000’s were definitely a product of it’s time and this week’s movie on Talkin’ Tuong is here to prove it! Join Tuong La and road trip buddies The Making Box’s Sarah Bennett & Mitchell Horne as they get deep and dirty about the raunchy teen sex romp that is 2008’s Sex Drive (now streaming on Netflix)!
Magic mirror on the wall…what’s the oldest Disney animated feature of all?

Waka Waka! This week on Talkin’ Tuong we bring in Shit Hot Shit Show’s/It’s All Super’s Matt Barrow to talk about his love for puppets , or more specifically his love for Muppets!

The (slightly) relaunched Talkin’ Tuong is here and we are kicking things off with PodCavern fan favorite…Samantha Leggatt! The whole idea of this new-ish format is to find ways to connect with friends (old and new) in these darker times by talking about something more fun, like the types of art we are consuming more of these days. For the foreseeable future, we will be doing 1 on 1 interview shows with new guests every Monday to discuss the latest pop culture news as well as talk about one movie/tv or show/game/etc. that we both agreed to watch pre-recording. So sit back and enjoy our newest episode about Pixar’s latest movie…Onward!
