A video game, an anime, and a podcast make an appearance on this episode of The 25 for 2017. Rookie Amy Peterson joins returning guest Tyler Glodjo and host Jonathan Clauson as they battle it out to see which of their nominations will make it onto the list this week.
Jonathan plays double duty as host and nominator, bringing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the table in a second bid to have the open world game make it onto the list. The game brings joy and a sense of wonder, along with meeting the criteria of the “Homo Ludens” philosophy of play.
Amy Peterson, making her debut on The 25, brings a new show called Truth’s Table to the floor. The podcast is hosted by Michelle Higgins, Christina Edmondson, and Ekemini Uwan, three Black Christian women who talk about their life experiences, including hair issues and race issues. The show gives the perspective of Black women over everyday experiences, giving a glimpse into their world without the heavy and depressing rhetoric that can bog down similar discussions.
Tyler brings the anime that is smashing box office records and has every anime fan talking, Your Name. Part coming-of-age, part comedic body swapping (think Freaky Friday) the movie was a surprise for Tyler and his wife who went to go see it and came away surprised by the way the film touched them.
Three nominations, but only one can be on the list—so join us as Amy, Jonathan, and Tyler have a battle of wits and snark as they try to get their nominations into The CaPC 25 for 2017.
