Big thanks to Nicole for joining us this week. We are big fans of her work over at NBP and with In Their Own League, and it was a big pleasure to finally get her on the show, especially given her love for Mulan. As we continue our Fellini Series this week, and of course we’re biased, but our review of is probably one of the best reviews we’ve ever done. All in all, we had a lot of fun on the show week and we hope you enjoy it as well.
