    Halfway through book three, y'all! In this episode, who's playing who, Mrs. Coulter or Lord Asriel? Also, the mulefa have their own Genesis story: what are the implications of that on the multiverse? And if hell is where those who exercise cognition and creation exist, does that mean we are all there always? It's pandemonium, literally, this week!

jkrul000 ,

Was it free will or destiny that brought me to this podcast??

Both hosts are a joy to listen to. They go deep and don’t shy away from the largeness of Pullman’s world(s). They’ve got me pausing the podcast and rewinding, taking mental notes, and getting into long philosophical questions about free will with my partner. Thank you for finally giving this series the time and attention it deserves. ❤️

Lovely and Thoughtful Analysis and Banter ❤️

As a long-time PotterCast listener, and someone who read His Dark Materials as a child and young adult, I am so down for Melissa and Will’s thoughts and analysis, which has brought me back to this incredible series

Sara Gardner obviously. ,

Brilliant!

Really smart, fun commentary on a beloved TV show and very charming hosts!
