    I just found this podcast, and after having listened to this episode, I think it’ll be the perfect companion for me as I do my reread in preparation for the upcoming tv show. 😀

    You two have a really fun dynamic, and I love all the extra stuff you do, like discussing characters and demons and PLAYLISTS?! That’s awesome. (I also have a lot of HDM related playlists and one of them even have Seven Devils on them, so I found that to be a fun coincidence.)

    Anyway, going to really enjoy listening to this. Onwards!
    Also, my demon is a dormouse.

      Ahh! I’m so sorry it took so long to get back to this. We’re so glad you’re enjoying the podcast! How did you get to a dormouse for your daemon!?
