First “My Neighbour” Podcast focuses on Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

The team behind the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast have launched a “sister” Podcast, My Neighbour, which will focus on a specific Studio Ghibli movie every episode.

For those perhaps unaware, Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation film studio based in Koganei, Tokyo, Japan, best known for its anime feature films such as Laputa: Castle in the Sky and Kiki’s Delivery Service. It has also produced several short films, television commercials, and one television film.

This first Podcast offers insights on Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Often considered a Studio Ghibli film, it was produced and released before the studio’s official founding.

“We also have an introductory episode entitled A Brief Guide to Ghibli, ” says co-host Ian Loxam. “It’s such a great story on how the Studio came to be and one that gives hope to every aspiring artist.”

If you’re a Studio Ghibli fan, then you may be interested in offering the team your views on Laputa: Castle in the Sky for the next show of our next film,

Send them to the team via the contact form on their web site or on Twitter or Facebook (links below).
