The Wonder Yeerks is a show where three doofuses (Sara, Blair, and Satah) re-read the Animorphs books, re-watch the Animorphs show, and talk about how much we love our morphing children.
Animorphs Is Feminism Because Mommy Issues
It's Animorphs book 49, The Diversion, & we're so enthralled by it that we don't even take note of the episode number.
In addition to changing the whole dang status quo, we discuss: More Blood Pokemon!, Being The Only One On The Way To Work Who Looks Like They Recently Drowned, Rachel Giving Marco A Drunk Stick & Poke, F**k A Circus, and Hatsune Miku Invented Pasteurisation

Jellyfish Are Like Not Super Into Politics
This was recorded just after our last episode came out four months ago. We have good intentions & I, personally, am doing something close to my best, thank you! Appropriately, it's book 48: The Return.
In addition to rat monarchy, we discuss: I Think I Just Missed You Guys, Tobias Would Identify Too Hard With Anakin, My Podcast Within-A-Podcast Crying About The Skywalkers, Jake's A Serial Killer AU, Jellyfish Are Made Of Good And Lightning
Tammany Hall, I Gotta Google Some Things
Oh Yeah! Uncles!
The six months between recording and posting this episode is a reference to the time travel in the book! Don't think about it too hard! We read book 47: The Resistance, which is about a real life war, unfortunately!!
In addition to being xtreeme teene bored, we discuss: A Camp Movie Where They Keep Cutting To Beavers Building A Dam, Doing Crosswords & Getting Into Wordplay, and Brain's A Strawberita
Somehow In My Heart I Knew It Was Going To Be Weed Related
It sucks trying to capture that jaunty episode description tone when the book is just so sad. This book is so sad and so full of trauma and I don’t know how to do any sort of exclamation point about it or anything. We read Animorphs 46: The Deception and then talked about it.
In addition to I DON’T EVEN HAVE A PITHY JOKE FOR THIS SECTION, we discussed: Why Sara’s Brain Is Bigger Than Doctors’, We’re Not A Bong Family, Crossword Twitter, and Animorphs Is So Hard You Guys
Referenced media: This image for some f*****g reason, not that i’m editorialising, but maybe i tried to edit out its inclusion but then it got referenced again so i had to put it back in, love my cohosts, would never judge them, wouldn’t dream of it, producing this podcast is a dream & i never think abt breaking into their homes to change their mic setups, a 1999 Toyota Yaris
I'm Gonna Google Snoopy; You Guys Do Whatever You Wanna Do
ive been soooooo sick its late & i didnt put the theme music in & im not gonna put the theme music in & im not writing a description & im not sorry. be nice to me. IT’S ANIMORPHS BOOK 45: THE REVELATION & SPOILER THE TITLE IS REFERRING TO U REALISING U HAVE TO BE NICE TO ME.
In addition to general Marco feelings, we discuss: I Came Out To Have A Bad Time & I’m Honestly Feeling Very Attacky Right Now, Animorphs Noir, They’re All Just Looking For Dads, and King Of The Hill Animorphs AU

Someone Walked Out Of Plato's Allegorical Cave & Was Told To Draw A Catgirl
About forty minutes into this episode, one of the hosts just sort of starts photoshopping pictures of kangaroos and dropping them into the groupchat. That’s the energy we’re bringing to the analysis. It’s Animorphs book 44, The Unexpected, and we’re doin’ an outback daytrip.
In addition to barely parsing 143 pages of action, we discuss: I Hate Having To Confront The Person I Am, In-Universe Animorphs True Crime Podcast, I Don’t Pass The Mirror Test, and Animorphs Come To Canada
Referenced media: kangaroo tweets, kangaroo images, a snag (Australian snack)
A wonderful podcast for ANY animorphs fan!
I can’t recommend the wonder yeerks highly enough! Anyone who loved animorphs as a kid is able to vicariously experience the joy of rereading the series as an adult through Luna, whose excitement is contagious, and anyone who wondered what animorphs was even about will get to follow along with first time reader Blair. I never stop smiling while listening to this podcast and I would die for both the hosts Thanks.
A Wonderful Listen
Luna and Blair are both absolute delights and every time a new ep of TWY comes out I drop everything to listen! Love these goofy dorks and all the word crimes they do!
