His Dark Materials, The Subtle Knife Ch 2: A Cliff Ghast Is An Enemy Always

Since The Subtle Knife continues with a truly insane amount of plot, Melissa and Will have decided to take their time and split chapter two into two episodes. We’ll be doing quicker plot discussions and then getting into themes. We also have alethiometer readings, the Extra award, and a brand new mixtape for your listening pleasure. Dive into this amazing book with us!

His Dark Materials, The Subtle Knife Ch 1: Back to the Good Stuff

We’re jumping into The Subtle Knife this week, and we couldn’t be happier. The first chapter is jam-packed so we go through the strange new world we’re thrown into piece by piece (00:02:39). A LOT happens. Then, we get into the Extra Award (00:43:06) and our alethiometer readings (00:45:42). We can’t wait to see where Lyra and Will go from here!

His Dark Materials, Golden Compass, Ch 20: Let Iorek Be Iorek

It’s THUNDERDOME and we are in it with Iorek and Iofur.

Just one chapter this week as we get ready for Dumbledo- we mean, Asriel, to arrive next time.
