Like a Bitch Eating Crackers | Dragon Age Inquisition

Lulu hands the reins over to Ally as she hosts this week's podcast, alongside guest hosts Lisa and Emily, on Dragon Age Inquisition! Plenty to gab and fume about as they break apart what made Inquisition amazing (hello Dorian Pavus -- light of everyone's life), and where it stumbled (ah yes, the wonderfully mapped Hinterlands with surprise higher level Rift in the middle of a needed zone). They touch upon companions, love interests, missed opportunities to dissect the learned institutionalized self-hate, and mechanics changes, as well as much, much more. Does include spoilers for the entirety of Inquisition (including the Trespasser DLC), so beware if you haven't gotten to it yet! Read More

You Rat Bitch | The Haunted Forest Tour

Abandoning the original book chosen for Spooktober, Ally and Lulu pick up The Haunted Forest Tour by Jeff Strand and James A. Moore and boy, was that the right decision! The prologue alone induced more creeps and spooks than the entirety of The Haunting of Ashburn House. There were gory bits (though not too gory), there were creepy crawlies, deaths, murder, torture, but also team building exercises and chuckles along the way. The authors truly created a seamless work of fiction, which is incredibly difficult as readers can usually tell when there's a change (eg Good Omens). Read More

The Before Times | The Haunting of Ashburn House

Ride this wild rollercoaster of emotions as they try to figure out what went wrong, where this takes place, and whether they'll actually finish the book (which they've never had to consider before!)

Emotionally Compromised | Labyrinth Lost pt2

BE WARNED! LIKE ALL OF OUR PODCASTS, IT IS FULL SPOILERS!! Ally and Lulu feel all the feels as they finish Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. Tears were shed, breakdowns at 3am were had, followed by some interestingly placed anger at the end (most of which was captured on a separate podcast for our new patreon!) This was overall an amazing book and one which both hosts would love to read more of. Thankfully, there's a sequel set to come out next year! Read More

The Coco Man is Here | Labyrinth Lost pt1

I am very tired. It is 2:30 in the morning and I have worked a full day and am sick with a cold so I cannot write what I normally write here anyway. Please enjoy this podcast. We had a lot of fun talking about the first half of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. We'd love to do more books that feature characters of color. Any suggestions? Let us know! Read More

Dancing with Blood | Penny Dreadful

Lulu and Ally welcome Lisa back to finish off the second season of Penny Dreadful! Lisa continues to threaten Lulu with liking Caliban, while Lulu massively spoils herself for the ending of the series, and Ally is extremely disappointed in her latest trash child. This was a fun episode where they bounced around references to Oliver Twist, Little Women, and Gollum. Give it a listen, then give the first four episodes of season three a watch in time to join the gals for the next Penny Dreadful podcast in October! Read More

Words Are Wild | This Savage Song pt2

Whaaaaaat? Ally and Lulu are back to finish off This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab finally? Sorry, sorry, it's been too long and Lulu is extremely sorry for the mini forced hiatus, but things should start getting back to normal! Give a listen as Ally and Lulu feel extremely smart finishing the book, discuss possible theories that might come into play for the sequel, and then enjoy as things get splicey towards the end as they once again spend twenty minutes searching for a specific quote (which was found, but totally irrelevant at that point) that later gets completely cut out of the final mix.

That’s Villain Talk | This Savage Song pt1

Ally and Lulu both worry over whether the other truly likes This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (spoilers, they both are loving it so far!). Lulu has fallen in love with Kate, while Ally wants to protect August at all costs. Neither trusts Leo. The first half of This Savage Song gave Ally and Lulu loads to contemplate but also, loads to love already. Read More
