We are joined by friend of the pod and Tolkien scholar Lauren to dive into YA classic HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE by Diana Wynne Jones - as well as its stunning Studio Ghibli animated film adaptation directed by Hayao Miyazaki! We talk Diana Wynne Jones's Tolkien inspiration, sassy old ladies, bratty femboys, adaptation choices, and much more! Stick around til the end where we announce what we're covering next time, and don't forget to rate and review us on iTunes!
