After spending a few months in our Summer jungle, we have lumbered back to the Jungle of Death to bring you our thoughts on the not-quite hit of the Summer — Pacific Rim. Hear our thoughts on Mecha Anime, the future of blockbusters, and Australians! Just make sure you listen at a lower volume level this time as our first podcast recorded on my poor little Mac is a little crackly.
In preparation for the season finale, and another TEN MONTHS with no Game of Thrones, the Babes present [SPOILERIFIC] reactions to the episode everyone’s (still) talking about, and predictions for what came next. We will react to the season finale just as soon as we’re done processing all that’s happened this time around!
Certain classics of genre are peerless, like Star Trek. Join your babes for about an hour of diatribes and discussions on the latest JJ Abrams offering, Star Trek Into Darkness, a riveting journey into the dorkest parts of the human psyche.
The Babes are back in the Jungle of Death with a solid hour of fangirl flutterings about the master, Neil Gaiman. Do you want to know what made us love the Gaimanverse first? Do you want to hear our thoughts on his work in comics, novels, and on-screen? This podcast is for you. And by “podcast,” I mean “love letter.” By “you” I mean “Neil Gaiman.”
In an extravagantly long episode we indulge ourselves in a spoilerific discussion of HBO’s adaptation of George RR Martin’s epic book series A Song of Ice and Fire. Warning: SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS. Come wallow with us in an hour plus of fawning fan girl antics, feminist critique, and predictions for the coming season.
We’re back in the Jungle of Death with a terrific, rambling, and sometimes insightful episode about Young Adult Heroines. Join us as we chat about the explosion of YA and the rise of the introverted YA heroine. Thrill as we critique Katniss for the umpteenth time! Recoil in terror as we talk about the merits of Stephanie Meyer’s writing! Rise up as with us as we join together to demand more complete heroines!
And well, just give it a listen. There’s a lot going on in there.
