Welcome to our ragtag podcast. One of the unexpected pleasures of the past year of lockdowns and nightmares has been sharing some of our favorite movies with our daughter.  We've always been close and shared lots of movies (both kids movies and some not), but, this time without blockbusters or rep houses choosing for us, we actually turned back to our prodigous DVD collection and started her real education, and she's positively flourished. The conversations we have after each movie have been surprising, smart, and, I think, pretty funny.  Hopefully you agree.
