Bolt

We're talking about Bolt, a movie in which an eccentric director with a huge hit is quietly replaced by a studio exec who doesn't understand their process.

A Podcast About Watching Cartoons With Your Family

The history of Disney is a history of war, capitalism, art, politics, and death. But to a fourth-generation “Disney family”, it’s also a history of joy and love. Can a podcast be about two things??

Join ex-movie and games critic Isaac Coleman (Second Opinion, I Coleman Is Doomed) and his mother, Ruhe, as they watch every film in the Disney Animated Canon and talk about how it was made, what it means, and why they love it – or don’t.

This is a limited podcast series with new episodes every Friday. We keep the show clean so that parents and kids can listen together.
