Over the Garden Wall: Any Sort of Spooky Villain

Hey guys!

Daniel and Jackson are back with a super topical podcast about a miniseries from 2014. For those of you unfamiliar, Over the Garden Wall was a ten-episode story released by Cartoon Network. Since its release it has received something of a cult following in the same circles that appreciate the likes of Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and Bravest Warriors.

Since each of those properties has been praised on this podcast before, you can probably guess where this episode is going. Anyways, even if you aren’t familiar with Over the Garden Wall, there is a lot of good discussion about character arcs, the nature of fear, and how adult-oriented media tackles cynical reality versus how child-oriented media does.

Of course – spoilers abound; both for Over the Garden Wall and for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

As always, here are some things you should check out this week:

This week you should watch Garfunkel and Oates (here is the sample we promised

This week you should play Mystic Vale

And some more bookkeeping, here is the article on the nature of the Beast that Daniel mentions in this episode.
