Much of Cowboy Bebop went over our heads when we saw it for the first time (we were so young!) The greatest example of this is Brain Scratch, a haunting commentary on real-life cults. Our guest Sarah Hightower knows just how bold Bebop got concerning Heaven's Gate and Aum Shinrikyo, but the story doesn't end in the 90's...…

Boogie Woogie Feng Shui is a unique Cowboy Bebop episode that drops spirituality into a sci-fi setting.
