Always a Pleasure!

Michelle and Ruth give excellent insight on all things Shadowhunter. They are thoughtful, entertaining and pay attention to all the details. I look forward to each new episode and enjoy older episodes in between! Thanks for the wonderful podcast!

This show got me through the hiatus between seasons 2 and 3. If you love Shadowhunters, and want to listen to EVERY minute of every episode being skillfully and lovingly and painstakingly analyzed, you should listen to this podcast. Seriously, they talk about the smallest details. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the voices of the two hosts (or maybe it's just me), but who cares, they're both really good.

ETA: it was definitely just me - they actually sound pretty different. Anyways. To reiterate. If you love Shadowhunters, you should listen to this. If you miss Shadowhunters, you should very definitely listen to this podcast (and then find it on social media and connect to other people who do as well).

Fangirl alert!

This podcast allowed me to let out my inner fangirl and dive deep into a show/book that I get more pleasure out of than I should. The girls do a phenomenal job of digging through the episodes, providing commentary and even poking holes in a few places while still screaming at the top of their lungs how much they love Shadowhunters
