Bonus Track 297b: Is the Baby Ohm Alive?

In this super-extended Bonus Track, we discuss the differences between subs and dubs, try to spot a “Space Battleship Yamato” reference, and look on in horror/amusement as Steve and John debate a handful of frames that determine the fate of a baby Ohm.

The Incomparable 297: The Ohm Whisperer

Our survey of director Hayao Miyazaki’s work continues with 1984’s “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind,” in which a post-apocalyptic world (of the 1980s nuclear armageddon variety) is populated by princesses, bugs that can’t help but be buggin’, a bunch of flying vehicles, and a suspicious fall through quicksand.
