Ravin’ Girls Episode 26: Tiny Irish Flag


Welcome to Season 2 Episode 26, where we cover Chapters 40-43 of The Dream Thieves!

Gansey gets disturbing texts from Ronan’s phone, Adam has gone missing, and Ronan and Kavinsky are out having a Dagobah moment. We tackle (no pun intended) the Great Dick Pic Controversy, and question how many times Shannon read through the books before she thought Ronan was “okay”. We find out what autocorrect has decided Glendower’s poet should be named, and talk about a disturbing number of bodies stuffed in trees. Shannon wonders if we should continue our Fast and the Furious franchise by watching Tokyo Drift and comes down firmly on the side of Team Adam, and Nievita talks about her dream Raven Cycle cosplay accessory. We also mangle a lot of Welsh words. We’re sorry. We tried.

DEEP DIVE: Hywel Sele and Related Legends (from approx. the 16:57 minute mark to 29:37, depending on your player)

Ravin’ Girls Episode 25: The Sweet Spot

Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.25: The Sweet Spot

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 25, where we cover Chapters 34-39 of The Dream Thieves!

Ronan puts the dreamed Camaro keys to the test by seeking some street racing Zen with Joseph Kavinsky, but gets a collision of epic proportions instead. Meanwhile a different, but no less destructive, type of collision is happening at the Gansey mansion between Adam and RCG3. Looks like lots of things are going to end up broken tonight! We also talk about the fastest cars we’ve ever driven, how street racing relates to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and the perfect TV show visuals. Shannon calls Ronan “bro”, Kavinsky is weirdly compared to a white knight rescuing a damsel, and Nievita rants about the legality of abandoning a car (not to mention nightmarish bodies) on the side of the road in Virginia.

LISTENER QUESTIONS: Instead of a Deep Dive this time, we answered listener questions from approx. the 1:05:42 minute mark to 1:19:42, depending on your player)

Ravin’ Girls Episode 24: Dangerously Hipster Tendencies

Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.24: Dangerously Hipster Tendencies

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 24, where we cover Chapters 31-33 of The Dream Thieves!

The Dad-friend leaves town for a party and everyone goes crazy! Ronan uses his dream-keys to start the Pig and illegally takes Matthew back to their childhood home, Blue and Noah poke into all the crevices of Monmouth and get frisky on Gansey’s bed, and meanwhile the only bright spot for Adam and Gansey is an old guy talking about pigeons. Shannon talks about the car she wishes she could take out of her dreams, Nievita gets caught up in the physiology of ghosts, and we both give our picks for Gansey’s favorite Beatles’ song. Plus, you get DOUBLE the DEEP DIVE!

DEEP DIVE: PIGEONS!!! And… Sir Thomas Malory (from approx. the 12:01 minute mark to 25:11, depending on your player)

Ravin’ Girls Episode 23: All of the “A’s”

Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.23: All Of The “A’s”

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 23, where we cover Chapters 27-30 of The Dream Thieves!

Everyone’s on fire at Kavinsky’s substance party, including the Mitsubishi! Ronan and Gansey visit another king’s kingdom, Maura and the Gray Man go on a date where Maura steals yet another piece of his property, and Ronan has a very, very symbolic dream. We also agree that the 80’s were a weird time, Shannon discusses the legality of fireworks, Nievita points out the most unbelievable part of the whole book, and we discuss which one of us would be more likely to follow the other person in a car on a date.

Ravin’ Girls Episode 22: The Kinks Are Always A Problem

Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.22: The Kinks Are Always A Problem

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 22, where we cover Chapters 23-26 of The Dream Thieves!

The Gray Man breaks into Monmouth while flirting with Maura, the Gangsey and Orla make a sweaty and frustrating boat trip to discover some enigmatic clues, and Blue meets her mom’s new suitor while rehearsing The Little Mermaid with Noah. We talk about the Gray Man’s life motto, who has the cutest pet names (spoiler: it’s Mr. Gray’s rental car), and if we would rather live at 300 Fox Way or The Barns. Shannon has an adorable accent, Nievita acts out a piece of fan art (great podcast content for sure), we wonder Who Wore It Best, and we all find out why Alfred was So Damned Great!

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)

Ravin’ Girls Episode 20: Silent Hill Flashbacks

Ravin’ Girls S2 Ep.20: Silent Hill Flashbacks

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 20, where we cover Chapters 15-18 of The Dream Thieves!

The Gangsey head back to visit their mystical talking tree friends for the first time since Adam made his bargain, but what’s this? A whole forest is gone! The Pig once again breaks down in a plot-convenient way, and Ronan has terrible dreams… some of which escape his head. We talk about what a drama queen Ronan can be, how Gansey can apparently use a smooth pick-up line on everyone except Blue, the parallels between Ronan’s mask dream and incidents in The Raven King, and how even Goddesses can sometimes make poor fashion choices.
