Every other week, three people who read Animorphs as kids and one who didn't read and discuss another book in the series.
We're back with another movie—and we've found the Crayak to The Host's Souls' Ellimist: Grant Grant the Slither. Just in case this isn't already our most indecipherable episode description yet: Alex and Jenna start a game of Cats Me If You Can, we delve into Poke-Cannibalism, and we debate the difference between Dibs and Dabs. (Yes, we're all on TikTok. How did you know?)
We're back, and this time we're discussing the film adaptation Stephanie Meyer's Boss Baby-prequel, The Host! We were surprised to learn some valuable lessons:
LIVE by rotating your crops!
LAUGH at bad southern accents!
LOVE your slug!
A Change of Plans
Instead of talking about a book none of us felt like we would have much to say about, we're taking a week off! We'll be back in a fortnight to talk about the movie The Host.
Vegemorphs: The Fungus Among Us
Welcome to the book that has forced us to reevaluate what we know to be a vegetable, ponder the viability of a stage musical adaptation of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, and...wait, what did jet-setting monkeys have to do with this?
Peoplemorphs VII: No Thyme for Love
Only one mind could sift through the last few books we have read to write fanfic that connects the dots between them. Join us, intrepid listeners, as we venture into the great unknown: the mind of Tim!
Humanomorphs 6: What Would We Do without Jill?
I dunno, bud. I don't know.
(CW: Child abuse, body dysmorphia)
Incredibly informative discussions wrapped in a light, flaky crust!
Too good to miss
I fell asleep on a plane listening to this, but when I woke up, I immediately rewinded (re-wound?) the episode to listen to what I missed. It’s that good.
They're lopsided, but they seem like cool dudes...
I have loved revisiting these books and the hosts are great tour guides on that visit. Would be fun and engaging even if I didn't have a deep love and nostalgia for the source material. Definitely worth checking out!
