Ravin' Girls Ep. 7: Poor Sweet N00b

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 7, where we cover Chapter 19-22 of The Raven Boys! Finally, it’s the episode where we get the band together! Adam finally contacts Blue (three whole days later!) by way of an apology carnation, there is an exhibition of Ronan’s dubious grasp on physics, and the Gangsey goes exploring in a highly convenient plot-icopter. Nievita does her best (absolute worst) Schwarzenegger impression, it is revealed that Nievita and Shannon went to middle school with the exact same person, and Shannon poses the question: does the Raven Cycle pass the Bechdel Test?

Ravin' Girls Ep.6: Midnight Magic

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 6, where we cover Chapter 16-18 of The Raven Boys! I think someone slipped us the giggle juice this time around! We lose our collective minds about the subject of Paul Bunyan’s beard, debate whether baby birds are cute or ugly, give some solid advice on what to do if something tells you it can “smell you” (hint: RUN!), and Shannon makes what might be the nerdiest joke this podcast has ever seen. And that’s saying a lot.

Ravin' Girls Ep.4: No Object Permanence

**Episode Summary:** Welcome to Episode 4, where we cover Chapters 12-14 of The Raven Boys! So, who’s a socially awkward shitbird? Well, all of the characters, really, but Whelk in particular. In this episode we discuss Ronan and Gansey as old marrieds, Whelk being a genuinely distasteful human, how no one in the town of Henrietta seems to possess object permanence, and how sometimes your first instincts to help a situation are the wrong ones. **DEEP DIVE:** Dowsing and pendulums **WARNING:** These chapters deal with the direct result of domestic abuse. Please practice self-care while listening.

Ravin' Girls Ep.3: Sleepless in Henrietta

**Episode Summary:** Does anyone ever sleep in this town? In this episode, we cover three chapters that happen deep in the middle of the Henrietta night. We discover what Shannon finds spooky but Nievita loves, what the original draft versions of Gansey and Blue were like, how the Fae and corpse roads are intertwined, whether spelunking is really more dangerous than motorcycle racing, and Nievita’s headcanon for Gansey’s journal (it involves unicorns.) Deep Dive: the history of Ley Lines and the folklore of Fairy Paths Also mentioned: a possible SPECIAL VIDEO episode if we reach 100 subscribers. Tell your friends!
