Back Row | Week 140 | Encanto & the Cracks of the Family Madrigal


About This Episode

There’s no escaping it. It’s been months since this particular movie first hit theaters, and still, everywhere you turn, you hear it. No matter if you’re scrolling on TikTok or listening to the songs people are humming at the office – everybody around you is specifically NOT talking about Bruno.

This week, Radio Matt & Mo are taking a good look at the latest Disney hit – Encanto – as well as diving a bit deeper into the struggles and even mental health issues of many of the family members, all the while trying not to sing the soundtrack and get a copyright complaint.
