What is Toon My Heart about?

Toon My Heart is a podcast about taking a closer look at popular animated movies through a Christian lens, in search of faith-relevant themes and traces of eternal Truth. Each episode features an overview of the history behind an animated film, along with some anecdotes about my personal history with it, a "kid's eye view" synopsis of the film from my daughter, a discussion of any objections that Christians might have to the film, a theme Bible verse, and then the meat of the podcast: A synopsis of the themes and ideas I see reflected in the film's story that I believe resonate with the Christian faith.

Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

The idea for Toon My Heart first came to me as I watched (and re-watched) Encanto with my daughter. Recently at a WonderCon panel on Pop Culture and the Christian Church, one of the panelists, Alexander James, said something that really resonated with me: "That thing you love as a passion is actually a pulpit." This podcast allows me to use something that I'm passionate about-- animated movies-- to also talk about something that is even more important to me: my faith.

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

I hope they gain a deeper appreciation for animated films and a deeper (or even new!) love for God. I also hope listeners learn to look for deeper messages in movies for themselves and recognize how themes that resonate with their faith are all around them, even in "secular" media.

Which episode should someone start with?

Each episode stands on its own, so you can start with whichever one sounds most interesting to you!

Which have been your favourite episodes so far?

I can't choose!

Which episode are you most proud of?

So far, I would say my answer is always "the most recent one." I feel like with each episode, I'm learning more and becoming a better podcaster.

What is your vision for your show?

My show is a hobby and I expect it always will be. But I still want to make it as good as it can be and keep learning and growing with each new episode I produce. My greatest hope is that it touches someone in a positive way and glorifies God.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

If I had to choose just one, I would say Office Ladies. I found it just after the pandemic started, and in that very isolated and stressful time, it was so good to feel like I had two girlfriends chatting with me in Jenna and Angela. I still look forward to it every week, especially when I need a lift. Others I enjoy include: Let's Make A Sci-fi/Rom-com, Wolf 359, In Strange Woods, Verbal Diorama, Smash Boom Best, A Burden For The Times, and Jane and Jesus

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

"Toon My Heart" is a play on the first line from one of my favorite hymns, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing": "Come thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace." I generated many ideas for the podcast name, but although this one felt a little obscure, I just always came back to it, so I went with my gut.

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Tracy. I'm a sinner saved by grace, a daughter of the King, a wife, a mom, and a fan of animation. I'm a magazine editor by day and a hobbyist podcaster whenever I can squeeze it in.
