Show Notes:

Get out your DSM-5 guides and clipboards as Joseph and Ami are joined by special guest Sam to discuss how mental ilnesses are being portrayed in Steven Universe. It’s such a big topic that this is only half of it!

Plus, everyone discusses who their favourite fusion is, and everyone talks about how great Garnet is (as usual).

    After re-watching Giant Woman a few times, Opal has really climbed my personal Fusion rankings. As kind of a call-back to the Influences Podcast, I really noticed the parallels between her appearance and a Final Fantasy Summon Spell: She has her own theme song, as she just focuses on the enemies, has a long animation where her weapon comes out, and then the bow ‘charge-up’ sound before she fires could be lifted directly from the Shiva Diamond Dust summon 🙂
