Episode 89 - Infinity War

Welcome to episode 89, which is almost as long as the topic we're discussing--INFINITY WAR! What did we think about Thanos' ideology? How about those—well, you know. What's up with Gamora's storyline? Find out our thoughts within.

To get right to the Infinity War talk, skip to 00:14:30.

Warnings: Lots of swearing! Also some discussions of abuse and sexuality, though nothing graphic.

Mistakes: Missy mistakenly says she didn't feel the emotional beats of "the other arcs of Black Panther," but she meant Infinity War.

Episode 87 - Valiant by Holly Black

Have you ever wanted to hear us talk a lot about having a troll boyfriend and a sword? You're in luck, because this week we're chatting about Holly Black's Valiant, in which those two basic human desires are satisfied. Also, how much is too much to show, why do we love monster romance, and finding ourselves in a story about finding yourself.

To get right to the Valiant talk, skip to 00:25:00.

Warnings: This one's marked explicit for a reason, folks. Alongside a bunch of cussing, you also have graphic discussions (by us and in the book) of drug use and some discussion of sexual assault.
