Kate continues Miyazaki month with Princess Mononoke. This episode is full of trivia on why it took this box-office recording-breaking Japanese hit 2 years to come to the United States as well as taking deep diving on the themes of this mature movie. Themes in this episode are:
- Infections of rage and hate
- The whole damn world is cursed
- Two sides to every story
- Being small, stupid and worrying about your survival is a precursor to war
- Not to fear the god of life and death.
