    Episode 8: Betrayal with @QX20XX

    Evan is joined by his Ani-Gamers Podcast co-host David Estrella (@QX20XX) to wrap up the first season of His Dark Materials. The season finale, “Betrayal,” shows a darker side of Lord Asriel and ups the story’s stakes to cosmic levels. Since this is the season finale, we go a little longer than usual, discussing not just the episode itself but also the season as a whole and David’s predictions for Season 2. This will be the last podcast for a while, but stay tuned for more podcasts once Season 2 gets started later this year. Thanks for listening!

    Episode 7: The Fight to the Death with Renee

    Episode 7: The Fight to the Death with Renee

    Evan sits down with his friend Renee to discuss the seventh and second-to-last episode of His Dark Materials Season 1: “The Fight to the Death.” This is a jam-packed episode covering Iorek’s battle with Iofur over the right to rule the Svalbard bears, Lyra’s reunion with Asriel, and Will’s fight to protect his home from Boreal’s henchmen. The episode has a few problems, including overly fast pacing and a relatively short stay in Svalbard, but it ends on a tense cliffhanger leading into the season finale!

    Episode 6: The Daemon-Cages with @WanderinDreamr

    Evan sits down with Helen (@WanderinDreamr) to chat about the sixth episode of His Dark Materials: “The Daemon-Cages.” We finally get a glimpse into Bolvangar and the experiments that the Magisterium has been conducting, as well as some more excellent Lyra and Mrs. Coulter content. However, the conspicuous lack of dæmons in some of the scenes is beginning to get in the way of the core themes of the story.

    Episode 5: The Lost Boy with @illegenes

    This episode Evan talks to Natasha (@illegenes) about the fifth episode of His Dark Materials: “The Lost Boy.” Things are really kicking into gear now, with Lyra and the Gyptians discovering the true nature of the Magisterium’s operations at Bolvangar and the introduction of one extremely important character from The Subtle Knife! Also we will never stop talking about Best Boy Iorek Byrnison and his powerful tired dad energy.

    Episode 4: Armour with @kyle_cardine

    Once again Evan is joined by a guest who hasn’t read the books: Kyle (@kyle_cardine) comes on the show to talk about the fourth episode of His Dark Materials: “Armour.” We discuss the introductions of Lee Scoresby and Iorek Byrnison, Lyra and Lee’s banter, Mrs. Coulter’s ability to control the men of the Magisterium, and more of the mechanics of dæmons. And we just keep coming back to Iorek Byrnison because he’s great.

    Episode 3: The Spies with @jeffinitelyjeff

    Evan is joined by series newcomer Jeff (@jeffinitelyjeff) to talk about the third episode of His Dark Materials: “The Spies,” which focuses on the Gyptians and features another entry in the continuing adventure of Lord Boreal Doing Regular Things. Evan’s curious to hear what Jeff thinks is working so far and what’s not, without the bias of having read the books.
