Stop! OK, move a little bit closer to hitting play on your podcast player. Stop! Move a little bit more. Stop! Move a teensy bit more again. Stop! Oh jeez, this could take a while.

…Several days later… This week’s Lambcast is all about the Laika studio, and specifically the five films they’ve produced. With the release of Missing Link, also known as Jay’s most anticipated original film of 2019, it seemed the perfect opportunity to take a wander through the studio’s filmography, otherwise Jay probably wouldn’t find the time to see Missing Link on the big screen. Joining him were Todd, Getter and Aaron for a fun show with a great feature discussion, entertaining rants & raves and a silly game.
