Ravin' Girls Episode 15: Full (Ritual) Circle

Welcome to Episode 15, where we cover Chapters 44-48 of The Raven Boys! Here we are, at the end of the first book of the Raven Cycle and the end of our first season of The Ravin’ Girls! Join us as the earth shakes, bad guys quake, animals stampede and visions take heed. Adam makes his sacrifice and gains a leafy new best friend and Ronan admits that Chainsaw is a cliffhanger ending--leading us directly into Season 2: The Dream Thieves. Oh, and Shannon drops a piece of knowledge that has Nievita questioning everything she thought she knew about their friendship. Revelations and new beginnings, indeed! No Deep Dive, but we do have an informal discussion about the podcast and Seasons 1 & 2, starting at 56:12 (depending on player) Subscribe at: https://ravingirls.podiant.co or wherever you get your podcasts, and please comment, rate, or review! - - - - - Next Episodes: HIATUS-- We will be taking a short break between Season1: The Raven Boys and Season2: The Dream Thieves -- stay tuned to social media & subscribed to our feed for giveaways and announcements!

Ravin' Girls Episode 14: Guacamole Love

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 14, where we cover Chapters 39-43 of The Raven Boys! We are just one episode away from the end of Season 1 and wrapping up the first book of the Raven Cycle. It’s been a lot of laughs and tears so far, and just like these chapters we are winding up to go out with a stampede! Or, well, something like that. Shannon drops some Transformers trivia and calls Nievita out on her taste in men; Nievita makes a Rick Riordan joke and questions whether Punxsutawney Phil is actually immortal as claimed; and we discuss terrible lunch habits and that Whelk is indeed correct on one thing and one thing only… guacamole might be worth committing murder for.

Ravin' Girls Episode 13: Triskaidekaphobia

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 13, where we cover Chapters 36-38 of The Raven Boys! While 13 is generally one of Nievita’s favorite numbers, this episode feels very unlucky indeed. We take a dark ride through the confrontation between Adam and Robert Parrish and the immediate aftermath--and while we do cry, it’s possibly not as much as we thought we would. We tackle some pretty heavy topics such as the responsibility of Adam’s mom, Ronan’s expression of his pain and frustration, the protection that white privilege affords some of the characters, and how Gansey’s own parental emotional neglect may have played in to his responses (but does not excuse his victim-blaming.) Strap in, my friends… you know it’s a tough one when Whelk is the comic relief. WARNING: These chapters deal with the direct result of domestic abuse. Please practice self-care while listening. We love you!
