Ravin’ Girls Episode 16: Dewey Decimal Ogre

Ravin’ Girls Ep.16: Dewey Decimal Ogres

Episode Summary:

Is it finally here? Is this actually real?! Is it happening, or are we just DREAMING? Welcome to Season 2 Episode 16, where we cover the Prologue-Chap.3 of The Dream Thieves!

We are indeed BACK with our first episode covering the second book of The Raven Cycle, The Dream Thieves! Join us as we introduce our favorite hit man, talk about the fairytale-esque stories of the Lynch family, Nievita reveals that she has discovered the birthdate of Niall Lynch, Shannon reveals that she shares one of Ronan’s favorite things, and we both reveal that we are huge nerds by making Monty Python references. (Just kidding on that last one–you already knew we were huge nerds.) And we want you to tell us… what should trigger our Season 2 Drinking Game?

DEEP DIVE: Tropes & Motifs of Fairytales and Celtic Mythology (from approx. the 19:49 minute mark to 36:59, depending on player)

Ravin’ Girls Ep.15: Full (Ritual) Circle

Welcome to Episode 15, where we cover Chapters 44-48 of The Raven Boys!

 

Here we are, at the end of the first book of the Raven Cycle and the end of our first season of The Ravin’ Girls! Join us as the earth shakes, bad guys quake, animals stampede and visions take heed. Adam makes his sacrifice and gains a leafy new best friend and Ronan admits that Chainsaw is a cliffhanger ending–leading us directly into Season 2: The Dream Thieves. Oh, and Shannon drops a piece of knowlege that has Nievita questioning everything she thought she knew about their friendship. Revelations and new beginnings, indeed!

Ravin’ Girls Episode 14: Guacamole 14: Guacamole Love

Ravin’ Girls Ep.14: Guacamole Love

Episode Summary:

Welcome to Episode 14, where we cover Chapters 39-43 of The Raven Boys!

We are just one episode away from the end of Season 1 and wrapping up the first book of the Raven Cycle. It’s been a lot of laughs and tears so far, and just like these chapters we are winding up to go out with a stampede! Or, well, something like that. Shannon drops some Transformers trivia and calls Nievita out on her taste in men; Nievita makes a Rick Riordan joke and questions whether Punxsutawney Phil is actually immortal as claimed; and we discuss terrible lunch habits and that Whelk is indeed correct on one thing and one thing only… guacamole might be worth committing murder for.

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!
