The Drawn: The Story of Animation podcast pays homage to the multitude of elements that contribute to the creation of some of history’s most memorable and influential animated television shows and movies and the people who brought them to life.

Are we in the midst of a new golden age of animation? The creators of Drawn: The Story of Animation think so. Brought to life by podcast network HowStuffWorks and hosted by frequent network contributor Holly Frey, Drawn takes a deep dive into the world of animation and showcases the writers, illustrators, musicians, and voice actors who collaborate to create the shows and characters we know and love. Listeners hear from the makers themselves about the complexities involved in bringing animation from idea to air as conversations with historians put the significance of beloved television and movie into cultural context.
