Then, Rachel’s guest topic is something she loves to talk about, sports movies! Best sports movies, worst sports movies, movies you didn’t think were sports movies, they all get covered!

Souvenirs & Mulan with Jordan Sarili



Matt & Emily welcome Jordan Sarili to the podcast to enjoy some of Solberg & Hansen’s Nordiske Skogsbær (Nordic Forestry) tea from Norway.

Jordan’s topic is the Disney animated film, Mulan. He talks about what makes it special to him, the songs, the acting, the humor, and offers some thoughts on the upcoming live-action remake.
