    Season 2 Episode 6: Malice with @jeffinitelyjeff

    Evan discusses Episode 6 of Season 2 with Jeff Ruberg, a.k.a. @jeffinitelyjeff (host of the Love It Or Weeb It and Podigious podcasts). This episode is a bit of a bridge, setting us up for the finale, but it still has a few high points. Mrs. Coulter’s terrifying confrontation with the Spectres and a big twist in her relationship with Boreal, the revelation of Lyra’s “other name,” and a high-flying chase scene with Lee and Jopari!

    Season 2 Episode 5: The Scholar with @illegenes

    Season 2 Episode 5: The Scholar with @illegenes

    Evan discusses Episode 5 of Season 2 with Natasha, a.k.a. @illegenes (check out her anime blogging on Isn’t It Electrifying). It’s a high-stakes heist episode in which Lyra and Will sneak into Lord Boreal’s house, but we spend a lot of time talking about the incredible amount of character development Mrs. Coulter gets as she explores a world in which women are far more free than they are in her world.

    Season 2 Episode 4: Tower of the Angels with @tiffysniffs

    Evan discusses Episode 4 of Season 2 with Tiffany, a.k.a. @tiffysniffs, another huge fan of the books! This episode is the most exciting one yet, with multiple action scenes and the long-awaited introduction of the Subtle Knife and Stanislaus Grumman. Plus: Lyra and Will’s relationship just keeps getting more complex and satisfying as the series goes on!

    Season 2 Episode 3: Theft with @sasuraiger

    Season 2 Episode 3: Theft with @sasuraiger

    Evan discusses Episode 3 of Season 2 with Dave, a.k.a. @sasuraiger, the first non-book reader guest of Season 2! This episode has got some more development in Lyra and Will’s relationship, the titular theft of the alethiometer by Lord Boreal, and an incredible interrogation scene between Mrs. Coulter and Lee! Plus: Iorek, the return of Evan’s Dæmon Corner, and entirely too much talking about Paddington.

    Season 2 Episode 2: The Cave with @caraesten

    Season 2 Episode 2: The Cave with @caraesten

    Returning guest Cara joins Evan to discuss Episode 2 of Season 2. Lyra explores Will’s Oxford and meets the wonderful Mary Malone (one of Evan’s favorite characters), Mrs. Coulter orchestrates Father McPhail’s rise to power, plus lots of great little moments of character development. Apologies for the audio quality; Cara had to record using her iPad!
