S1E15: Inside Out

In our longest episode ever, Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons dive deep into the mind to break down 2015’s “Inside Out.”

They go inside a Pixar Braintrust meeting and debate whether the creative summit was successful, reveal some of the other emotions that were considered as characters, debate the scientific accuracy of the world of “Inside Out,” and examine Riley’s strange family dynamics. They also talk about why the movie actually works, islands collapsing, how to embrace sadness, and what it means to be vulnerable and make human connections. Things get real, you guys.

Stay tuned for a very special breakdown of the new “Toy Story 4” trailer at the end of the episode.
