Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.19: 50 Shades of Mr Gray
Welcome to Season 2 Episode 19, where we cover Chapters 12-14 of The Dream Thieves!
This time around we discuss the possibility of dream creature cryptids, death cooties, what car Nievita used to race, and Shannon’s fancast for Mr. Gray. Find out which one of us likes plain yogurt and who thinks the fruit is the best part. We tease Blue a lot for being inadvertently gushy over one Richard Campbell Gansey III. And we answer a listener question about our feelings regarding unusual ‘ships for the Raven Cycle.
DEEP DIVE: The Triple Goddess (from approx. the 37:58 minute mark to 48:20, depending on player)
