Sometimes You Cope?! (Side A)
Your hosts sit down to celebrate the year of the ox with some moon cakes and magic! Today's episode we break down the kid's animated film Over the Moon! This epic children's fantasy weaves a tale of family love, loss, and how to build your own rocket to the moon to prove the existence of the Moon Goddess to prove that True Love is In Fact Real. Wait, what was that last bit? Don't worry! There are rabbits, dragon lions, little brothers, and a race against time surrounded by Chinese lore and universal messaging. But can this story hold up to other cultural sing-a-longs?
