Ravin' Girls Ep.2: Nino's Meet-Ugly

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 2! We cover chapters 4-8 of The Raven Boys, with a Deep Dive on Geoffrey of Monmouth. Nievita reveals her favorite Easter egg of TRC and exhibits her ignorance of the imports/exports of Virginia, much to Shannon’s amusement. We question whether ghosts have pockets, and how this could possibly be the first meeting of the Gangsey. There may or may not be some tears when talking about the Lynch brothers. ** ** Subscribe at: or wherever you get your podcasts, and please comment, rate, or review! ** ** \- - - - - ** ** Next Episodes: 11/2/17-- Ravin' Girls Episode 3, covering chaps. 9-11 of TRB and don’t forget to look for our first SPECIAL EPISODE RELEASE-- a Spoiler-Free Review of Maggie’s new book, All The Crooked Saints! ** ** Follow Us: Twitter: Tumblr: Facebook: WordPress: ** ** \- - - - - ** ** Links to Articles, Websites, and Other Discussions: * Barrington Whelk's namesake: * Wikipedia Article on Historia Regum Britanniae, written in 1136: * The Dragon and The Unicorn by A.A.

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.
