His Dark Materials, S1 E6: Daemonless

The Bolvangar episode has some great moments, but we are finding it really hard to justify some of the choices made when it comes to portraying the relationship to humans with their daemons. Come along with us as we discuss Season 1, Episode 6, of His Dark Materials: “The Daemon-Cages.”

This episode IS SPOILER SAFE. We will let you know before we go into spoilers so you can turn it off. If you are only watching the series, you’re fine to listen.

In this show: we depart from our normal format to do the Good and the Bad. We also give out an Extra Award and add two more songs to the mixtape!

This episode is sponsored by Shaker and Spoon. Have some merch! We have a whole new Jordan College shirt!

His Dark Materials, Golden Compass, Ch 21: Just a F’in Ravenclaw

Lord Asriel is here to Dumbledore this for you. (Warning, we curse a little bit in this episode.)

There’s no sorting this week, or perhaps we’re ALWAYS sorting? Because we don’t know if Asriel is a Ravenclaw or a Slytherin, but it’s probable he’s one of those. Join us to discuss Chapter 21, Lord Asriel’s Welcome, where he finally faces a defiant Lyra (00:03:20), then our Alethiometer reading (01:19:12), the Mixtape (01:25:09) and the Extra Award (01:33:29)!

Next week, we finish the book. Then we’ll start having some guests on to unpack it all.

Let us know what you think via twitter (@extraneouspod) or IG (@extraneous.pod), or better yet send us a voicemail at extraneouspod@gmail.com and we can play it on the show!
