Ravin' Girls SpEp: Opal Short Story

Welcome to our Opal Special Episode, covering the short story released with the paperback edition of The Raven King! There’s a lot packed into 38 short pages, and both Shannon and Nievita have a lot of feels (ALL THE FEELS!) and a lot to say. Nievita loves little old (Cloud) ladies brazenly reading trashy romance novels (to be fair, Shannon does, too). Shannon thinks Opal needs to be introduced to Mr. Rogers (to be fair, Nievita was unfamiliar with the episode in question). They both agree that Opal is awesome and adorable and also creepy. There’s also plenty of discussion about how the story ties into the upcoming Dreamer Trilogy and what it means for our expectations. As always, stick around to the very end to hear us being ridiculous! Subscribe at: https://ravingirls.podiant.co or wherever you get your podcasts, and please comment, rate, or review! ...

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!

Ravin' Girls SpEp: Call Down the Hawk Sampler

Welcome to the Call Down The Hawk Special Episode!!! Where we cover the excerpt released by Scholastic, Prologue-Chapter 8. So many new characters! So many new things to be worried about! SO MUCH EXCITEMENT! Find out what Shannon would have called the black market, what 90’s British cartoon Nievita thinks might be related to dreamers, the possible meaning behind the new dream-forest’s name, and what we found most shocking and satisfying about the excerpt. We answer (or ramble) some listener questions, and grade our past predictions for the Dreamer Trilogy as Confirmed, Denied, or Unknown. Are we possibly psychic? It’s up to you to decide! NOTES: There was an announcement today (7/3/19) about Ronan’s birthday in the final version of Call Down The Hawk being changed from the listed date in the preview excerpt, to keep in line with events from The Raven King.
