Hello and welcome to the first episode of Season 2 of The narrative labyrinth, where in this small corner of the audio internet, we dive into film, tv, literature, and games with In-depth review discussion and analysis.
In this episode, Rachelle is joined by Andy @Andy3E, and Zoe @Zoe_On_The_Go as they talk about the power of Nostalgia and If you grew up in the 2000s, things like Mean Girls, Windows XP and Club Penguin might make you nostalgic. That is because all things from our childhood bring back fond memories. Nostalgia can be a great feeling, leaving one to be reminiscent of their past but is it worth the price we are paying? And is it really the best media we can make?

Hello and welcome to another episode of The narrative labyrinth, where we discuss film, tv, literature, and games with In-depth reviews, analysis, and discussions.
Fantasy films often have magic, it's a big way to separate the unreal from the ‘us’. Some put more detail into this than others, some we have to not look too closely at otherwise it all falls apart.
In this episode, Rachelle is joined by Eligos @MoonEmprah as we talk about the laws of magic, how they work, and what franchisees do them well and not so well - here's looking at you, Harry Potter.
