    The One With the Remote Guest

    The One With the Remote Guest

    TBOL ch 6
    It's time for a formal dinner! Fun, right? Let's answer this question as Lady Daemons: "Nah, Bruh." Eventually, we get to a calm period when people were able to break bread without killing each other, and that's nice -- until the ultimate party-crasher dialed it in. Yikes.
    In typical fashion -- when this book is concerned -- this episode is packed! So prepare for a long ride in the wagon. We will stop for pee-breaks, but pack snacks!

    The One With the Surprise Baby

    TBOL ch 5
    Vampires and witches having babies?! Meh, that's old news to Ysabeau. But it's new to Matthew and Diana ... and us, kind of. The secrets in this chapter have us all reeling, and it's quite a ride. This is a long one, so pack your snacks, because we have two segments with TV news! One recent, and another from about a month ago. This is a Daemon time-walk episode!

    The One With the Congregation Revelation

    The One With the Congregation Revelation

    TBOL ch 4
    Through a series of tussles (verbal/physical) between the head of the de Clermont family and the Grand Master of the Knights of Lazarus, we finally learn who in the family actually holds that elusive seat on the Congregation, and where the HQ is located -- REVELATION! After we've examined all of the information in front of us, we finally understand why the rag-tag group of creatures must scatter in a week's time. As we go, these chapters continue to be dense with information, so naturally the episodes are longer! Take it in bites, or gobble the whole thing! P.S. Don't be a "Karen," wear your masks, and let's get out of this mess!

    Family Meeting. Time: 4 am. Place: The de Clermont library, Sept-Tours. RSVP: N/A. Be there, or else. That sums it up, doesn't it? We learn that we STILL need to learn a lot about vampires (geez, Matthew)! This is a long one, but we had some things to say . . . stay tuned during Save It For the Show. We saved plenty for the show. This is another long episode, guys; it's just going to be that way for a while, since 2020 continues to surprise and (DISMAY) delight.

    The One With Pseudo Science

    Character Study - A personality episode
    We're "on the tens" once again, and it's time for a character study! We thought that this would be an excellent way of handling the subject this go-around. We're revisiting our personality episode from way back when (2016), and doing a updated version; Personality 2.0, if you will. When you hear our process, you'll understand the title very well. It's pseudo science at its righteous best! We will be studying Kit, Susanna, Ransome, Fernando, Vivian, Andrew and closing out with Miriam as the headliner. We hope you enjoy listening, as much as we did recording it!

Delightful Daemony Discourse

You three make me laugh every time I listen, despite the content (whether AST or current events). I love how your show is so actively engaging that it makes me feel like a participant, though I haven’t written in (yet). Thank you for sharing your friendship with your followers and supporters! Sending love, witchy hugs, and well wishes your way.
