His Dark Materials, Golden Compass Ch 22-23: Ad Astra!

To the stars! Or to wherever Lyra just went.

Join us as we trek up the icy ridge of sorting Lord Asriel (00:04:17), up the snowy hill of Ch 22 (00:12:21), over the trembling bridge of Ch 23 (00:33:41), into the aurora-bright alethiometer readings (01:08:33), peering through to a new world for the Mixtape (01:13:13), and we’ll finish torturing this metaphor with the Extra Award (01:18:57), then wrap it all up (01:20:50).

This week, we would like to know what alethiometer symbols you would assign to the whole book. Let us know what you think via twitter (@extraneouspod) or IG (@extraneous.pod), or better yet send us a voicemail at extraneouspod@gmail.comand we can play it on the show!
