Ravin’ Girls Episode 27: Circular Chicken

Ravin’ Girls Episode 27: Circular Chicken

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 27, where we cover Chapters 44-49 of The Dream Thieves!

So much angst, practically every character hits bottom. That means the only thing left is up, right? Nievita tells basically everyone except Kavinsky to eff off, and Shannon calls Greenmantle a b*tthole which is basically the same thing. We talk symbolism in Feng Shui and Japanese buffets, and disagree on the extent that K is responsible for Cabeswater’s disappearance. There are some tears–but possibly not from who you would expect. Calla gives our first solid hints about how time works in The Chicken Cycle, and we award our most expansive MVC yet!

DEEP DIVE: Stereotypes and Media Tropes relating to Joseph Kavinsky (from approx. the 20:29 minute mark to 30:01, depending on your player)

CAUTION: In our Deep Dive we discuss the broad history of media portrayals of queerness and ethnicity. While we always try to be as sensitive as possible, we understand that this is a much more nuanced topic than we can possibly cover in 10 minutes. Please exercise caution while listening if you find this topic personally sensitive. Love!

Ravin’ Girls Special Episode: Call Down the Hawk

Ravin’ Girls SpEp: Call Down The Hawk

Welcome to the Call Down The Hawk Special Episode!!! Where we cover the excerpt released by Scholastic, Prologue-Chapter 8.

So many new characters! So many new things to be worried about! SO MUCH EXCITEMENT!

Find out what Shannon would have called the black market, what 90’s British cartoon Nievita thinks might be related to dreamers, the possible meaning behind the new dream-forest’s name, and what we found most shocking and satisfying about the excerpt. We answer (or ramble) some listener questions, and grade our past predictions for the Dreamer Trilogy as Confirmed, Denied, or Unknown. Are we possibly psychic? It’s up to you to decide!

NOTES: There was an announcement today (7/3/19) about Ronan’s birthday in the final version of Call Down The Hawk being changed from the listed date in the preview excerpt, to keep in line with events from The Raven King.
