Not Now, I’m Watching The Last Jedi

For this, our final episode of 2017 (and a very happy holiday to anyone celebrating, and a lovely Monday to all) we’re discussing our most-hyped movie of the year: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We swear we loved it a lot, even though we spend a great deal of this episode picking to pieces things we thought could’ve been done differently. We also talk about our current reads and what we’ve got coming up next.

As a quick reminder, we’ll be taking January off from the podcast to rest, relax, and ready some awesome new content for 2018. We want to thank each and every one of you who has listened to the podcast, read the transcripts, and chatted with us on Twitter. It’s been so wonderful getting to hear from you and talking about our favorite reads and fandom things this year. We hope we’ll see you when we return in February. Until then, happy reading and a happy new year!

Not Now, I’m Watching Thor: Ragnarok

This week we’re talking all about the last Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. Kay is thoroughly pleased, Chelsea is pleasantly surprised, and Chris Hemsworth is absolutely hilarious. While we don’t touch much on the movie’s themes of imperialism and colonialism in the podcast, we’ve included a few links from some super smart folks for you to check out if interested! Apologies for the audio quality from Kay’s end for this episode. It sounds like she’s recording in an echo-chamber, but that should be fixed next episode. And, as always, we’ll be talking about what we’re reading and what’s coming up next.
