35 – Flavors of Youth (2018)

Let’s look back for simpler times, but let’s do it with the 2018 internationally released anime anthology film: Flavors of Youth.

Sophie & Mitch break down each of the three chapters of the film and how they address (or don’t) the Chinese idiom “yi shi zhu xing” [clothing, food, housing, transport]. We also talk about the issues with titling, expectations, and our conflicted feelings towards this gorgeous film.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to keep up with news, to join the discussion about food, and to check out all of our personal recipes – this week though, we’d love to hear YOUR recipes; your flavours of youth, if you will.

20 – Sausage Party (2016)

What happens when food is alive? We checked out 2016’s Sausage Party to find out and it’s…very adult-orientated.

Sophie & Mitch talk about cartoon food, compartmentalized sentience, and the politics of orgies. We also cover the 2018 Pixar short Bao. Sufficed to say this is a full-sized episode.

Make sure to follow us on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook to keep up with news, to join the discussion about food, and to check out all of our personal recipes – like Mitch’s Hummus!

47 – Avatar: The Last Airbender w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Collective Legacy member Sophie Gareau-Brennan joins us yet again, this time to talk about a freshly finished show: Avatar: The Last Airbender.

So spoilers for the series; we talk about our favourite characters, story arcs, what kind of bender we’d like to be. It’s a pretty fun time of us discussing the show right after finishing it (and before we watch Korra).

So make sure to hit up Sophie via her Twitter if you’d like to chat more about Avatar or foodstuffs or other things; or just check out the show we host: We Watch Food.

Follow this show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!

25 – Mummies Alive! p.1 w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Sophie Gareau-Brennan & I begin a possible new chapter in the WenghTalk story: retrospectives on obscure 90’s cartoons like Mummies Alive!

We address how ridiculous all of this is, how this was an era of cartoons long forgotten (even to those who were kids when it happened), and the impossible economics of the museum that Presley’s mom works for.

So if you remember this series, please let us know! It is incredibly difficult to find & I would LOVE to continue through this gem of a cartoon.
