Ravin’ Girls Episode 13: Triskaidekaphobia

 

Ravin’ Girls Ep.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. We love you!

Ravin’ Girls Episode 12: The Great Butternut Caper

 

Ravin’ Girls Ep.12: The Great Butternut Caper

 

Episode Summary:

Welcome to Episode 12, where we cover Chapters 33-35 of The Raven Boys!

 

In this episode, we ponder the deepest of all philosophical questions: whether or not Gansey might be seeing alternate timelines, what the bathing habits of wizards truly are, what “butternut” is actually a euphemism for, and the hotly-contested eternal debate between, “The Pig is magic,” vs. “The Pig is just a piece of crap”. And, Lovely Listeners, this time around be happy that podcasting is not a fully sensory experience! They don’t call it “Devil’s Dung” for nothing…
