Totally Normal Podcast Episode 108: NYCC Panel Round Up: Muslim Fandom (Geeks, Nerds, Cosplayers & Creators)
Welcome to the Totally Normal Podcast Episode 108. This past weekend Lorena and I covered New York Comic Con 2019.
We encountered sublime cosplayers, caught up on the latest sci-fi/fantasy movies and television, comic books, artists, and all things Marvel, of course!
This episode focuses on one particular panel that breaks down the Muslim Fandom of the Comic Con world!
Meet the creators of comic books like; The Last Ansaars, and SQUIRE, hear from Hijab Hero cosplayers, and the importance of representation in all comic book mediums.
Totally Normal Podcast Episode 107: Talking Marvel: Endgame Postgame
We're Totally Fine. It's episode #107 of the Totally Normal Podcast, and we're talking Avengers Endgame Postgame and everything is perfectly not confusing.
We've assembled just as many badass TN women as Peter Parker has new moms so, buckle in for a supersize podcast as Jamie, Nikki, Lorena, Zanib Cassidy and Emily talk about our Endgame feelings.
Things like did Natasha get screwed?
What parts made us cheer?
Why did Marvel take 20 movies to figure out how to write a compelling female character to make us feel something?
What made us cry?
Really poignant comments that even a demi-god can suffer from depression and a mid-life crisis. Where does this leave Loki? and in the end, The Real Hero, the sacrifice and the parts that had us all crying our eyes out.
We love you 3000, Tony Stark, You did good.
And now, here are all of our feels on Avengers Endgame.
Episode 106: Harry Potter and the Totally Normal Hangout 108
Witches and Wizards, we've come to the end of Chamber of Secrets on episode #106 of the Totally Normal Podcast. We've hit the climax of the book and on this episode, Lorena, Jamie Zanib and Emily have figured everything out, kind of.
We don't know why the Hogwarts teachers are slow to act when their brilliant 12 year-old students know everything. Including finding clues that everyone else has missed! The professors are queens of shade however and ready to be rid of Gilderoy Lockhart, I mean who isn't?
Why did Dumbledore not share information pertinent to Harry's survival since he obviously knew how to save him, and what was going on! talk about manipulative.
On the topic of the Basilisk, did you know a rooster could kill it?
Should the puncture wound on Harry's arm from the fang have killed the horcrux in Harry?
Dobby's reward was just perfect and the deliciously evil Lucius Malfoy and his flowing locks of luscious blond hair, swoon!
and finally what other anagrams could we get for Tom Marvolo Riddle?
Tune in and find out!
We'll be back in June for Prisoner of Azkaban so be sure to follow us on all the social with the #TNtalksHP and subscribe to the podcast on Itunes. And now, Let's talk Harry Potter with the Totally Normal Hangout: Chamber of Secrets.
Totally Normal Podcast Episode 105: Talking Marvel: Endgame Pregame
Welcome to the Totally Normal Podcast Episode 105.
We are in the pr-egame now. We're talking Marvel's Studio's Avengers:Endgame with a pre-game podcast and Team Normal is here to break down all of our theories.
Don't worry, we don't spoil the Endgame. We've got overarching questions, theories on who lives-who dies, who stays dead, who defeats Thanos.
Is there time travel?
Is the soul stone done with Thanos?
Who are the terrible people who would even think of spoiling what we have waited eleven years for, and the conclusion of the Infinity saga.
We're all geared up and now into the Quantum realm with Team Normal for Avengers Endgame Pre-game!
Episode 104: Harry Potter and the Totally Normal Hangout 107
It's episode 104 of the Totally Normal Podcast And on Harry Potter and the Totally Normal Hangout we're talking chapters 11-15 of Chamber of Secrets with Jamie, Emily, Lorena & Zanib.
It's a lot to cover like, The Dueling club and How dumb was it that Flitwick, champion dueler, wasn't even involved and Snape literally had to protect the students from Lockhart. But at least the students could learn something...
Hermionie and the polyjuice potion had everything planned to a T! Except, where was the Slytherin common room again?
Why did we never get to see Percy's point of view this year and his love for Penelope Clearwater.
Hagrid's inability to provide decent advice, direction or counseling.
Yet again Lucius Malfoy was right in wanting to remove Dumbledore, and lastly, the thing we most would have loved to have seen in the movies was the Valentines Dwarves, and did Ginny send Harry the valentine? or was it secretly sent by Draco?

Episode 103: Harry Potter and the Totally Normal Hangout 106
It's Harry Potter and the Totally Normal Hangout and on this episode we welcomed Cassidy to Hogwarts and dive into chapters 6-10 of Chamber of Secrets where we get up close and personal with Kenneth Branagh's filmography.
Like between Jamie, Emily and Cassidy, our Kenneth Branagh love/hate game is strong especially when it comes to his portrayal of Gilderoy Lockhart. We also try to figure out how someone like Lockhart can still get away with what he does, even in fiction, and how can Hermione who is smarter than this put up with him.
Emily played HQ Trivia and won 30 whole cents. There was talk of Ghosts and Binn's History of Magic Class and again with the lesson planning and curriculum of Hogwarts and then we went to the afterdark section with a look at Madame Pomfrey fanfiction, Oh Poppy!

Drunk History crossed with Outlander!
I love the Thats Normal gang: smart, hilarious and spot on in their reviews! Its like Drunk History x Outlander—whats not to love? :)
Honest, perfect analysis of Outlander
This has become my favorite Monday night activity. As big fans of the Outlander books, Beth, Nikki, Julie and Bekah give the ups and downs of each episode of the show on STARZ. And as a book reader and show watcher myself, I find them to be spot on when analyzing everything from the writing, to the acting, the historical accuracy, and the obvious book to show adaptions. For a show that was well loved the first season, from book readers to show watchers alike, I am in total agreement with the discussions on how this show has gone too far off the rails, and am disappointed I the blatant omission of truly integral pieces of the books. Beth is my spirit animal, and I agree with her very insightful critiques. Thank you, That’s Normal for a fun and heartfelt discussion every Monday night! ❤️
If you like drinking and outlander (and other pop culture stuff) you’ll love this!
