It’s the third episode of The Missfits and Melissa steps out for a week and we’re joined up by geek lady extraordinaire, Zoë Gulliksen from Gotham News in her place. This week’s topic of conversation, as you may have guessed, is Studio Ghibli, the works of Hayao Miyazaki, his son Gorō Miyazaki and the other brilliant folks that have brought us these amazing films for over the years. Plus, important questions such as “Can anybody watch Grave of the Fireflies without crying?” (spoilers: the answer is no) are answered and many more that YOU, our awesome listeners, have submitted.

Zoë also joins Mara and I in discussing some of our favourite things from the past couple of weeks. Our recommendations include: The Wolf of Wall Street, Cabaret, Planet Comicon (in Kansas City), Black Bird, The Returned and TowerFall.
