    As if we weren't already stressed enough, Pullman has us on pins and needles and the fantasy elements of this store come to the fore. Your Materialists are SMITTEN with the Gallivespians and I bet you are too.

    Iorek's Meal (shudder) and Ama's Quest: Chapters 3 and 4 of The Amber Spyglass

    These chapters are decidedly NOT "BBC at 8pm" material, but we dive in and revel and retch at the viscera. We also wonder if the chapter framing device is working or not. Please listen, like, subscribe and whatnot!

Great-but a couple of suggestions.

A thoughtful podcast on the books and show. Joanna does an amazing job in the recap, but there’s electronic interference with whatever software she’s using which sometimes buzzes and cuts her off. Also she has a habit of saying “Do you know what I mean” A LOT. 😁. Still a fun podcast. I’ve watched the video on YouTube as well. Thanks for entertaining us.

Keep up the excellent work!

I love the content. You have such a grasp of the material of my favorite book series of all time. I listen to the chapters that you breakdown from the book, and also the the new “His Dark Materials” show. Excellent podcast for book readers and non-book readers alike. I highly recommend!
