Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.21: The Devil’s Junk
Welcome to Season 2 Episode 21, where we cover Chapters 19-22 of The Dream Thieves!
The Gangsey make an illegal trip to Ronan’s childhood home to get rid of yet another body. Ronan apparently dislikes light fixtures and psychics but loves his baby brother. Shannon connects the origins of some Sleeping Beauty stories to our good pal Geoffrey of Monmouth and reveals that she has a list of people she would bury a body for. Nievita admits to her childhood career aspirations and favorite Disney villainess, and we debate whether the term “Cat Room” refers to real cats or cat-shaped figurines.
MINI DEEP DIVE #1: The Origins of Sleeping Beauty (from approx. the 39:56 minute mark to 44:27, depending on your player)
MINI DEEP DIVE #2: Coyote as Mythological Figure (from approx. the 52:10 minute mark to 55:41, depending on your player)
