    Ruth Wilson Please Hurt Me

    Ruth Wilson Please Hurt Me

    Caitlin, Anya, Francis, and Alan wrap up the first season of His Dark Materials by reading all the emails we’ve gotten. We love Ruth Wilson, pick daemons for each other, love Ruth Wilson, and- oh did we mention we love Ruth Wilson? We go over our favorite moments, music, and knitwear of the season and discuss the letter “U” much more than anyone would have guessed!

    His Dark Materials 108 Betrayal

    His Dark Materials 108 Betrayal

    Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about the finale of His Dark Materials! Caitlin doesn’t care about Roger. Anya sees a Buffy connection. Alan can’t stop himself from saying Moses. We love the look of the show, Mrs Coulter, and we want Season Two right now.

    His Dark Materials 107 The Fight to the Death

    His Dark Materials 107 The Fight to the Death

    Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about great screams, too much hugging, and the heroine’s journey. We liked the bear fight but loved Lord Boreal and Elaine Perry. We stay on topic with robot murder, Spaceballs, and debating if Beyonce has a last name.

    His Dark Materials 106 The Daemon Cages

    His Dark Materials 106 The Daemon Cages

    Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about Bolvanger. Anya listens to the podcast in order to remind us of what we thought the first time around. Caitlin reluctantly enjoys witchy flight. Alan smoothly crams Dostoevsky into the discussion. Its one cliffhanger of a podcast.

    His Dark Materials 105 Lost Boy

    His Dark Materials 105 Lost Boy

    Caitlin, Anya, and Alan wrestle with this episode. Ma Costa is amazing, but Will is very different. And Will is fantastic, but Billy’s loss is not properly realized. Iorek is incredible, but can anyone be magnificent while struggling up a hill. All this, and knitting too.

    His Dark Materials 104 Armour

    His Dark Materials 104 Armour

    Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about geese. We get foxed by some accents with our special guest Francis, we discover that Anya was metal AF in middle school, and Hester is the best.

A teleologically perfect podcast

Insightful, learned, and hilarious discussions about the books and TV show. The hosts have great chemistry and each bring a unique and interesting perspective. I look forward to each new episode and can’t wait to begin the book 2 discussion!
