His Dark Materials: The Subtle Knife Ch 4-5, Cats

This week, we’re finishing up our chapter 4 analysis and moving on to chapter 5 of The Subtle Knife (00:04:17)We’re following Will and Lyra’s journeys and their approaches to the world, and we’re loving how these characters are coming to life. Also, in our themes discussion we note the way people treat animals in their respective worlds helps draw out the differences. We also have a canon conundrums moment (00:41:37), go over our alethiometer readings (00:44:04), and pick our Extra award recipients (00:47:24). Finally, you’re going to love the new songs Will added to our Subtle Knife mixtape (00:49:24).
