Ravin’ Girls Ep.6: Midnight Magic
Welcome to Episode 6, where we cover Chapters 16-18 of The Raven Boys!
I think someone slipped us the giggle juice this time around! We lose our collective minds about the subject of Paul Bunyan’s beard, debate whether baby birds are cute or ugly, give some solid advice on what to do if something tells you it can “smell you” (hint: RUN!), and Shannon makes what might be the nerdiest joke this podcast has ever seen. And that’s saying a lot.
