We have the distinct joy of podcasting TOGETHER for this book! The downside: we realized we sound virtually identical when we're in the same room. So, please enjoy listening to us talk about Cassie's awesome morphing powers, alien ethics and history, and the confluence of everything we've ever learned about the rise of the Yeerks - if you can tell who's who.
[TRT 36:04. We do not own Genie in a Bottle, of course, but we remember it with fond nostalgia and cackled with glee as we placed it in the podcast.]
New year, new returns to sadness! The Illusion finds us chatting about Tobias's connection to his ancestry, the concept of his and Rachel's dualities, and the (successful?) inclusion of Taylor as a Rachel-foil and villain.
[TRT 33:21. We do not own "Somewhere Out There," or the tears you might spill listening to it.]
Unable to fit it in an already-overstuffed discussion about #32, we bring you the extended conversation. Topics include the Warrior Girl archetype, antiheroines and subversions, women leads and ensembles, and the changing dialogue surrounding lady characters as we march forward and outward in media.
Join us, at the tipping point. We discuss the horror beneath the hijinks: what Rachel's duality and separation means for herself, the Animorphs, the series, and female characters in YA fiction as a whole. Oh yeah. It's a doozy.
[TRT 35:56. We do not own Nicki Minaj's "Dear Old Nicki." In fact, it probably owns us.]
We return to you with talks about Jake's tragic family conflicts, the emotional burden of war, and the scope of Yeerk HR and their invasion strategy.
[TRT 29:21. We do not own the fantastic song "Mon Frère" from the French stage musical "Les Dix Commandements" but we highly recommend you check it out.]
It's been awhile, but we return with a big one! Join us as we parse the complications of time travel and the implications of big events and small choices in history. That's right. We are CHANGING THE PAST. And it's messy.
[TRT 52:53. We sadly do not own Cher's masterpiece classic "If I Could Turn Back Time.")
