In our latest episode, Ellie joins us again as we get lost in the twists and turns of a childhood favorite while discussing Jim Henson's fantasy fable Labyrinth. We'll compare the movie to Henson's previous fantasy epic The Dark Crystal, examine the film as a metaphor for the transition to womanhood, and ponder what a Bog of Eternal Stench would smell like. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and a discussion of the cinematic impact of David Bowie's package.
