Ghibliotheque is a podcast that leafs through the library of films from Japanese animation leaders, Studio Ghibli. In each episode, Michael Leader, an avowed Ghibli fanatic, sits down with Jake Cunningham, who has never seen any of the Studio’s work before. Together they look at the history behind Ghibli's films, get a critical perspective from Jake as a first-time viewer and force Michael to rank some of his favourite ever films.
