The AFA Podcast: Episode 4

Pardon the interruption, but just over a week late Chris, Dan, Rachael, and Yvonne are back again to talk about some cartoons! Our main topic is 'The State Of The Animation Nation' where we discuss the current state of the animation industry. Are we in a 'golden age' of animation?

Before that though, we discuss some (now hopelessly out of date) animation news, including the heartening success of Mamoru Hosoda's Boy and the Beast, Shaun The Sheep's Swedish theme park and bum ourselves out talking about the sad passing of Nintendo's Satoru Iwata. Then it's time to discuss what we've been watching including titles such as Archer, Star Wars Rebels and My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu.
