A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

It's the seventh off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, our hosts take trip to Japan for Laika stop motion studios newest feature Kubo and the Two Strings, which isn't adapted from anything, but is the fourth beautiful stop motion movie from the studio that all three hosts love, even if they aren't huge blockbuster hits. It's finally CRAFTSMANSHIP appreciation week on Storm Of Spoilers, as we examine how Laika adapts Neil Gaiman books to entire cultures to the screen to tell us grand stories about love, loss and being an outsider.

Here is that animation from Fantasia 2000 that Da7e mentions.
