Fire the Canon

Boy oh boy, do we have a special episode for you! Today, in a vibes-based episode, we will be discussing the Moomins, amazing creatures created by Finnish writer/artist/anti-fascist Tove Jansson. These days, you can find the Moomins in TV, anime, movies, books, comics, and represented on basically every type of merch. We watched “Spring in Moomin Valley,” the first episode of the 1990 Moomin TV show (available on YouTube), and read the first few issues of the newspaper comic strip. Theo finally hears the best song ever heard. Jackie solves a long-standing Matt mystery. Rachel is joined by a very special surprise guest.
Topics include: visits to Houston, Jesus, the Winter War, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, possession by Moomins, Rousseau, Moomin Land, the Moomin Museum in Tampere, Reddit baby pranks, First Take Theo, Pusha T, maple syrup
