Show Notes

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 21, where we cover Chapters 19-22 of The Dream Thieves! The Gangsey make an illegal trip to Ronan’s childhood home to get rid of yet another body. Ronan apparently dislikes light fixtures and psychics but loves his baby brother. Shannon connects the origins of some Sleeping Beauty stories to our good pal Geoffrey of Monmouth and reveals that she has a list of people she would bury a body for. Nievita admits to her childhood career aspirations and favorite Disney villainess, and we debate whether the term “Cat Room” refers to real cats or cat-shaped figurines.

Ravin' Girls Episode 8: Babes in the Wood

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 8, where we cover Chapters 23-24 of The Raven Boys! Finally, Cabeswater! We start to feel like Maggie might be smacking us upside the head with all of the foreshadowing in this chapter, because basically the whole plot of the Raven Cycle is laid out here. Gansey shoots finger guns, Ronan claims his territory, Adam is the resident Smart Guy, and Blue finds herself inside of a tree for the first time. Physics are 100% solid in this series, Shannon walks us through the ins and outs the “science” of using EMFs in ghost hunting, and Nievita drops a truth bomb about Blue’s nickname.

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.
