Do you ever just feel abundantly seen by cartoon birds? Join us as we take a look at Tuca and Bertie, discussing adult animation, sex and relationships, surrealism, and how sometimes your limbs just figuratively fall off and that’s okay.
Warnings: We discuss both sex and sexual assault within the context of the show—nothing more explicit or intense than what might appear in Tuca and Bertie, but the discussions are there.
