Podcast: The Wind Rises / The Tale of the Princess Kaguya – Episode 506

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, it’s an epic conclusion to our Studio Ghibli Movie Series as we discuss Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Isao Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya!

This is an episode we’ve had circled on the calendar for months now. We are massive fans of both of these films. In fact, both were heavily represented on our Best of the Decade (2010s) show a few years ago. That’s how much these two films mean to us. So it’s no coincidence that we’ve paired them together and it made for one of the best episodes we’ve had all year.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!
