43: Deep Thoughts About The Last Unicorn

July 9, 2024

Magic! Do as you will!

Tracie brings her deep thoughts about the 1982 animated film The Last Unicorn, a lesser-known but beloved part of the traumatizing 80s movie canon. With gorgeous animation–the studio went on to become Studio Ghibli–this film tells an odd story about how mortality allows us to feel regret and reminds us there are no happy endings because there are no endings. Tracie and Emily’s conversation ranges from sublime (the gendered nature of power) to the ridiculous (I’m engaged to a Douglas fir!) and enjoys many pit stops through unicorn lore along the way.

Don’t be a Schmendrick! Put on your headphones and listen to this episode.
