This month (March 11th, 2024 to be exact) marked the 40th anniversary of the release of the film Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. So to celebrate this momentous occasion, friend of the show & HUGE Nausicaa fan Rachel is back to discuss the history of not just the film, but the manga it's based off of! Since the Nausicaa is pretty widely available at this point, we DO talk openly with spoilers. So if you've never seen the film before, go have a watch and then come back to listen to us do a deep dive & gush about what makes this movie so special in this extra-long episode!
