Show Notes

A little description of this project, and what it's about. We’re Shannon and Nievita, and we’re the Ravin’ Girls! This is our Raven Cycle podcast, where we discuss and analyze Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle books. We discuss the Raven Cycle as a cycle, taking a look at the connections and foreshadowing running throughout the series. We analyze and discuss the themes of the books. We talk character arcs as we follow the development of these wonderfully complex characters. We also often take a ‘deep dive’ into a specific topic relevant to the chapters we’re covering in that episode. Episodes will be posted twice monthly, with each episode focusing on approximately 3-5 chapters of material. Come join us as we follow the adventures of four dysfunctional teenagers and their dead Welsh boyfriend! ----- The Raven Cycle and all affiliated properties (The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves, Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King) are copyright Maggie Stiefvater and Scholastic Inc.

Ravin' Girls Episode 29: Death Waffles

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 29, where we cover Chapters 54-59 of The Dream Thieves! Ronan and the Gray Man finally meet face-to-face and it goes about as well as one might expect--possibly better, even. Persephone and Adam frantically fix the ley line as the 4th of July looms large in the sky. Why must they hurry? Seems like someone’s favorite baby brother may have been teen-napped… some guys really do just blow right past flowers and chocolate to cars and threats, don’t they? We discuss how long it’s been since we’ve seen “The Birds”, what items we would most miss if we had to go on the run, Shannon questions how much Nievita really is a fire sign and makes some surprisingly off-color jokes, Nievita’s pet naming conventions stay strong to a theme, and we finally get around to naming that new Metal band we’ve been talking about starting.

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.

Ravin' Girls Intermezzode Take2: Peach Pie & Noogies

Welcome to Intermezzode Take2, aka are we better at this whole remote thing yet?! The stinger section says NO! Join us as we cover a few listener questions related to everyone’s favorite Magician, Adam Parrish! We talk headcanons about how Blue found out about Pynch, how Adam’s deafness may or may not be used as a plot device, how readers can interpret characters and find personal representation regardless of textual evidence, and how sometimes those interpretations can be difficult for others due to extenuating circumstances and lived experiences (or lack thereof). CAUTION: This Intermezzode has some discussion of abuse as it relates to Adam’s hearing loss, as well as topics of race in the context of the Raven Cycle and the systemic oppression of Native/Indigenous populations in the U.S.A. These are sensitive and difficult topics and we urge you to please practice compassion while listening. For resources surrounding domestic/familial abuse, please visit RAINN (rape, abuse, and incest national network) with a 24/7 chat available: https://www.rainn.org/ Subscribe at: https://link.chtbl.com/d8E86BFy or wherever you get your podcasts, and please comment, rate, or review! - - - - - Next Episodes: Release dates of the Intermezzodes will be sporadic for the foreseeable future. The best way to find out when an episode will be released is to follow us on social media or subscribe to our feed on your podcacher of choice. Unfortunately, we are still unable to record together in one space and so we continue to hold off Season 3 until we feel confident with remote recording or we can be together in the same room again.
