    Episode 96: Not All Cavemen - Transcendence by Shay Savage

    Episode 96: Not All Cavemen - Transcendence by Shay Savage

    Did you ever watch those Geico caveman commercials and think, “I bet that hoss can really lay some club?” This week, Morgan and Isabeau plow for answers in Transcendence, a prehistoric romp by Shay Savage. It opens with our heroine and unaccompanied minor, Beth, traveling tesseract-style through millennia to arrive in the welcoming and paternally minded arms of our hero, a Homo savage known only by the guttural proclamation of, “Ehd”. Beth, similarly truncated to just “Beh” for the ease of her new partner, must navigate a preverbal relationship, find footing in a vastly undeveloped world, and acquiesce to a blossoming love affair that only the threat of death can provide. Where would you journey to in a personal time machine? Does Beth being 15 make it weird? When you picture a prehistoric man, what do you see, and why is it a tan Brendan Fraiser? Tune in for questions and commentary guaranteed to make your bed rock.

This week, Morgan and Isabeau embark on a historical romp through the Highlands in The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley.

But as suspicions gather around Lord Ian’s potential role in a double homicide, our lovers are forced to question the very fiber of their beings.

Smart and hilarious

I love this podcast. The hosts unapologetically enjoy romance novels while tackling the problematic aspects in a smart, candid, and hilarious way. They make me cackle.

Hit and miss for me..really wanted to like this one

I am a bit disappointed, I expected a lot more especially as a feminist and expected a more deeper conversation. And I always want to support women led endeavours. But I am torn.

Some episodes are pretty good but I find them being too critical and often disrespectful to authors and the romance genre in general. And for a feminist podcast, I don’t like how they sometimes make disparaging comments about women.

Being too negative and critical doesn’t make you more of an intellectual. Its sad that the feeling I got from this was them trying too hard to sound smart and intellectualise things but not really going deeper in the book, motivations etc. It seemed a bit superficial. I do think I am disappointed because I expected better.
