His Dark Materials, Golden Compass Ch 10-12: You’re Not From Texas

The Fancy Goose of Exposition appears in this episode to help us grasp the wonderings and the musings of Lyra, John Faa, and the Gyptians as they travel north. And we welcome, with great fanfare, the consequential characters of Iorek Byrnison and Lee Scoresby. Travel with us through the chapter 10 (00:01:19), chapter 11 (00:36:51), and chapter 12 (01:03:30); then hear some overall thoughts about what we learned (01:11:29), followed by our Alethiometer readings (01:15:53), the Mixtape (01:19:48), and the Extra Award (01:26:23). It’s a crazy week and we are JUST getting going with this! Join us!

Supernatural Season 1: Sad Dad Energy

Welcome to Extraneous: Supernatural! Extraneous is a podcast that goes deep on stories we love and comes back with a little something extra. We’re beginning with season one of Supernatural as we cling desperately to the hope that it’s not *really* ending next season. We’ll dig into everything we love about the first season: classic rock, confessions in the Impala, the Winchester Family Feels (™), early hunts, and so much more. We’ll also start our tradition of identifying who is the most EXTRA of the week.
