Show Notes

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 25, where we cover Chapters 34-39 of The Dream Thieves! Ronan puts the dreamed Camaro keys to the test by seeking some street racing Zen with Joseph Kavinsky, but gets a collision of epic proportions instead. Meanwhile a different, but no less destructive, type of collision is happening at the Gansey mansion between Adam and RCG3. Looks like lots of things are going to end up broken tonight! We also talk about the fastest cars we’ve ever driven, how street racing relates to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and the perfect TV show visuals. Shannon calls Ronan “bro”, Kavinsky is weirdly compared to a white knight rescuing a damsel, and Nievita rants about the legality of abandoning a car (not to mention nightmarish bodies) on the side of the road in Virginia.

Ravin' Girls Episode 27: Circular Chicken

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 27, where we cover Chapters 44-49 of The Dream Thieves! So much angst, practically every character hits bottom. That means the only thing left is up, right? Nievita tells basically everyone except Kavinsky to eff off, and Shannon calls Greenmantle a b*tthole which is basically the same thing. We talk symbolism in Feng Shui and Japanese buffets, and disagree on the extent that K is responsible for Cabeswater’s disappearance. There are some tears--but possibly not from who you would expect. Calla gives our first solid hints about how time works in The Chicken Cycle, and we award our most expansive MVC yet! DEEP DIVE: Stereotypes and Media Tropes relating to Joseph Kavinsky (from approx. the 20:29 minute mark to 30:01, depending on your player) CAUTION: In our Deep Dive we discuss the broad history of media portrayals of queerness and ethnicity. While we always try to be as sensitive as possible, we understand that this is a much more nuanced topic than we can possibly cover in 10 minutes. Please exercise caution while listening if you find this topic personally sensitive. Love!
