It's a moment of truth on Mousterpiece Cinema this week, as Josh and Mike are joined by special guest Simon Howell from The Televerse and Sound on Sight's flagship podcast. The trio team up to tackle the 1997 Studio Ghibli release Princess Mononoke. Along with Spirited Away, it's one of writer-director Hayao Miyazaki's most beloved films. And long-time listeners know exactly how much Josh wasn't swayed by Spirited Away. Will the experience of Princess Mononoke be any different? Do Mike and Simon need to convince him of the film's epic allure, its striking animation, and its complex characters? Find out whether or not Josh once again goes to bat for the out-there minority opinion, or if he finally succumbed to Ghibli's charms on this week's Mousterpiece Cinema!
