His Dark Materials, Golden Compass, Ch 18-19: We Stand a Goop Queen

BEARS! We are in Svalbard and there are a lot of bears about, none of which stands as tall as Lyra.

We get started with our sorting segment, and our consideration this week goes to Serafina Pekkala (00:01:58). Next, we move on to our breakdown of chapters 18-19 (00:06:29, 00:50:54). Then, we have our overall impressions of these chapters (01:26:01), our Alethiometer reading (01:28:53), this week’s HDM Mixtape (01:34:17), and Extra Award (01:39:53).
