Marcel the Shell with Shoes On & Stranger Things 4

Greetings programs! Welcome to the first episode of July, in which we discuss a lovely new movie and the return of a much-loved television series. In the top half, we’ll introduce you to Marcel the Shell with Shoes on, the brainchild of Jenny Slate, Dean Fleischer-Camp, and Elisabeth Holm, which balances childlike whimsey with deep emotional resonance.

There are streaming links powered by JustWatch a little further down this page, and the episode should be live wherever you listen to podcasts (including on this page) now.
