GTGC - #166 - Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind


Hello everybody, March is upon us and that means it is a very special time here at the GoodTrash Media Network because we get to honor our first ever Patreon rewarded marathon of shows. That's right, if you give us the right amount of money, you can get choose a marathon for us to program, watch, and talk about. This is your best chance of telling us what to do and when to do it. The very fist Patron who has stepping up to the challenge is Mr. Brigham Cole. Brigham has always been a big supporter of the show, and he took that a step further by pledging. In doing so, he pledged at a level which awarded him with what we're calling The Brigha-Thon! All through March, thanks to Brigham, we are going to be looking at Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind which would put a director by the name of Hayao Miyazaki on the map and lead to the founding of one of the most influential animation studios on the planet, Studio Ghibli. 

To kick off this marathon, we talk about our favorite animated heroines. For the first time ever, Alex could  hardly be contained and nearly spent the entire episode listing characters. I'm only half joking. From there, Dustin leads a round table discussion which addresses many of the topics within the films, including a look at the film's ecological, political, cultural, and feminist messages. 

So, as the end draws nigh, prepare yourself for battle, or possibly protest, and go ahead and click that little play button for us.
