Episode 46: Howl’s Moving Castle

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Stoke Calcifer and put on the kettle, Lisha and Jules are rounding out a month of animated films with Hayao Miyazaki’s 2004 fantasy adventure film, Howl’s Moving Castle! Listen up as Lisha goes on a tirade against weird love stories while simultaneously loving on a fire-demon, as Jules pokes at some writing issues and salivates over beautiful animation, and both of your hosts lament over how the titular character is really just a lil punk. It’s a bit of a rickety ride, but just push play and let Turnip-Head lead the way!

Special Episode 45: Hamilton

Welcome to a special episode of Screen Tea Podcast! She did it: Jules won spouse of the year and gifted Lisha the chance to cover her favorite on-screen media of all time, 2020’s film release of Thomas Kail and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton! Grab a Sam Adams (spoiler alert: Lisha had a few during this recording) and listen as your hosts give their impressions of the hit Broadway musical, track-by-track! Lisha unlocks a level of fangirling you’ve never quite heard before, mostly over Aaron Burr (and with that, a new level of swearing: this is not a Disney-appropriate episode, folks!), Jules reveals how helpless she really is over Phillipa Soo/Eliza (and just how much she doesn’t appreciate Lin-Manuel Miranda’s cry-singing), and both of your podcasters have a lot to say about Chris Jackson’s eyebrows. Come ring out the hellyear that was 2020 and ring in the new year with us, folks, and raise a glass!

Episode 44: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Don’t adjust your screens or your speakers: this week for animated movie month, Lisha & Jules are covering the insanely multi-faceted, visual/audio masterpiece, 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse! Web yourself into a cozy corner and listen up as Lisha discusses the importance of Miles Morales, character dynamics, and manages to reference vines somehow, as Jules gives the deets about the many feats of animation and pledges her moral allegiances to all Spider-People, and as both of your podcasters lament about just how much they relate to Human Disaster Peter B. Parker. As a bonus treat, we have a special recording included in the show provided by Hogey from the amazing podcast I Can Marvel All Day, where he discusses ties between this film and the MCU, unabashedly makes an episode request, and summarizes the most important question of all: how did they make this movie look so goddamn awesome?

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Bonjour et buvez beaucoup d’eau pour vous préparer à l’épisode de cette semaine! For week two of all-animated film December, Lisha and Jules are coming at you with the feature length directorial debut from Sylvain Chomet, 2003’s The Triplets of Belleville! Ecoutez as Lisha 1. Mangles the French language and 2. Get’s really, really bent out of shape over some sound and character design, as Jules becomes the protector of all things Grandmother, Dog, and 2D animation related, and as both of your podcasters get their feelings all over the place re: the absolute beauty of this film. If this is one you haven’t seen yet, folks, consider it homework: find it, watch it, and then hunker down with us for a review that’s all over the place, in true Screen Tea Podcast fashion (but this time, with more French swear words tossed in!).

Episode 42: Kubo and the Two Strings

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Please get cozy with whatever warm beverage brings you the most comfort, because for their first ever animated film episode, Lisha and Jules have chosen possibly one of the most heart-wrenching animated films created to date: Travis Knight’s 2016 masterpiece, Kubo and the Two Strings! Settle in with some loved ones and listen as Lisha explains exactly why Kubo ranks amongst her top nine films of all time (yeah, top nine, she knows what she said), hear Jules struggle to come to terms with her feelings about Beetle/Beatles while being smart about animation, and get a healthy dose of your podcasters getting annoyed about precisely ONE THING about this movie, really (can we maybe not whitewash roles? Guys? Hello?). Don’t blink; there’s lots of story here, in the first episode of an all-animated movie month!

Episode 40: Paterson

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Whether you plan on grabbing a pint at the bar, or sipping tea from a black and white spotted mug, get comfortable and prepare to be soothed (actually, not likely) by the dulcet tones (ha!) of your podcasters as they cover Jim Jarmusch’s poetic masterpiece, 2016’s Paterson! Be lulled by Lisha as she pines over a fictional bus driver and laments the fact that he’s, you know, FICTIONAL, don’t be put off by the fact that Jules might use this film as a hypnotic sleep device in the future, and join your hosts as they both compose stanzas praising Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani… and yes, Nellie the dog. It might seem like a slow burning episode this week folks, but no need to fear: we’re here to bastardize any semblance of intellectual discussion about this week’s beautiful film, so pull up a seat on the bus and join the conversation!
