Episode #6 — Pacific Rim


Strap into your jaeger and prepare to hit the breach as Renay and Jodie team up to discuss Pacific Rim, the monsters versus robots film of our hearts.

Episode #5 — Teen Wolf S3


Renay and Rose once again come together to discuss another beloved, but infuriating, trip to Beacon Hills. We discuss our complicated relationship to Teen Wolf, Derek's status as Jeff Davis's favorite punching bag, and cry tears of perfection about the interpersonal relationships — the one thing the writers seem to understand, because we're convinced they don't understand anything else, especially their own plotlines. Complete spoilers for all seasons of Teen Wolf. Download the episode if you love continuity as much as Jeff Davis hates it.

Episode #2 — The Scorpio Races


Renay and Susan discuss The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, complete with opinions about genre and marketing, feelings about horse narratives, and screaming rage about unnamed mothers.

I didn't think I was busy enough with a full time job, OTW work, LB, my family, and hours upon hours of misery/glee watching all these genre shows [personal profile] chaosraven got me hooked on. So I decided to dubcon some friends into a genre podcast. You're welcome, internet.

Episode #1 — God's War


Jodie, Phil and Renay forgo the potential three-headed cerberus nightmare monster of a Google Document tri-review to talk about God's War by Kameron Hurley for an hour +. Spoilers for the entire book. Despite having a guide provided by the author herself, our pronunciation of most of the words in this episode is dubious at best and we apologize sincerely for the terrible verbal atrocities we've committed. Download for exciting amateur podcasting and 1,000 vocalized pauses.

Welcome!

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
