This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Jacob Throneberry from Oscars Central joins us to discuss George Miller’s new film Three Thousand Years of Longing and we continue our Studio Ghibli Movie Series with Pom Poko!

A huge thanks to Jacob for joining us this week. We are big fans of his work and it was a pleasure to have him on the show. We had a lot of fun talking Three Thousand Years of Longing and debating if it achieved what it set out to do. Regardless of what you think about the film, it continues to add to the mystique that is George Miller’s filmography. As for Pom Poko, what a while movie for Isao Takahata. It’s unlike anything else in his cannon and we’re all the better for it.

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!
