Animorphs #37: The Weakness

Finally back into some good ol’ Animorphs books! This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles we read Animorphs #37: The Weakness, the one where Rachel gets to be boss for once! Spoiler: she’s not as good as Jake. This is also the one with the not-quite-an-Andalite, Sonic the Hedgehog alien that is apparently going to be a member of the Council of Thirteen for some reason. This week’s Fanimail: ‎Matthew Ferrantino: ...


TV Series: Episode 21

We’re back for Part 3 of Face Off, the season-spanning trilogy that ends...well, pretty much how you’d expect something like this to end. We talk body twinning and basketball games on this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles! Thank god Jarred is back once again to save us from this nightmare. This week’s Fanimail: @tinioril: Thomas Dendtler‎: Check out our...


TV Series: Episode 20

Part 2, baby! We jump back into the epic trilogy that is the Animorphs TV series arc called Face Off. This is episode 20 of the first season and Part 3 is episode 1 of season 2. Hopefully that gives you a good indication of how terribly organized this series is. Part 2 brings us a continuation of the heat-hating Yeerks, the Big Basketball Game, and many more fairly inconsequential things. Yay. Per the norm, we are joined again by Jarred! This week’s Fanimail: @Velawesome: ...


TV Series: Episode 19

We’re back at it, folks: time to tackle yet another episode of the masterpiece that is the Animorphs TV Series. This time we talk about episode 19 called Face Off: Part 1. There are three parts to this arc and, not surprisingly, there aren’t really any face offs to speak of in the whole thing. This is also yet another showing of how terrible TV show Ax is. Oh also, Jarred will be joining us, as usual! This week’s Fanimail: @moviepollz: ...


TV Series: Episode 18

We’re still chipping away at this block, people. Today we talk about the Animorphs TV series once again, this time about Episode 18: The Release, the one where the Kandrona is busted and Tom has a sore tummy because of it. Also, this is the one with the kind of badass teacher who has a weird understanding with Jake and the rest of the bandits. This week’s Fanimail: @wizardofflame: @the_slan: ...


The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #36

We’re talking fishy sea creatures in our Speaking Tree episode about Animorphs #36, the Nartec expedition with creepy human being dolls. This week we answer the following questions: How would you have taken down the Sea Blade? How would you use morphing to get your crush to call you at all hours of the night? How would you use an orca morph in your own life for purely personal reasons? This week’s Fanimail: ‎Allee Etheridge: ...


Animorphs #36: The Mutation

We dive into another salty episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles where we discuss Animorphs #36: The Mutation, the book where they find an underwater race of creatures who...stuff...humans? We talk about the development (or lack thereof) of Jake’s character throughout the series, dumb YA parables, and how awesome it was when the one whale got sliced in half. Check out our Podcast Page on the Collective Legacy Podcast Network site: You can find our...


The Speaking Tree: Visser

We dive back into Visser once again for this episode of The Speaking Tree! Brayden couldn’t take the heat so he’s away this week as Mikael and Tessa get real about some of the important plot points in this amazing side story. Questions we answered this week: In a world where Memory Dumps are a thing, how would you have hid the fact that you are trying to protect two humans from the invasion? How would you deal with your Host (and yourself) falling in love with another Host (and the Yeerk...


Visser: Part Two

We’re back to discuss the Animorphs sidestory Visser one more time! Last week we went over the plot of the book and this week we discuss our thoughts on the story! We try to pick apart some of the political messages in the book and try to decide what we’re okay with and what we’re not. Spoiler alert: we don’t come to a conclusive answer. Check out our Podcast Page on the Collective Legacy Podcast Network site: You can find our Patreon page at...


Visser: Part One

This week we talk about the infamous side story: Visser! This is the one where we learn the backstory of Visser One (the slug) and how her story intertwines with the more ways than one. Since the plot in this book is thicc af, we split our discussion episode into two parts. In Part One we’ll go over the summary of the book and in Part Two (next week), we’ll jump into some more in depth discussion of particular aspects we enjoyed/disliked/wanted to dig deeper into. Then, as...


The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #35

This week on the Speaking Tree we’re talking about Animorphs #35, the book where Marco almost gets strangled to death on national television and also Hanson was there. Here are our questions for this book: How would you do the banquet successfully? How would you use morphing to deal with your dad/mom dating someone new a few years after their SO (your other parent) died? How would you use a poodle morph in your own life for purely personal reasons? Also, as usual, we hear Brayden’s...


Animorphs #35: The Proposal

We’re back for another fabulous Marco book! This time on Dork-Bajir Chronicles, we talk about Animorphs #35: The Proposal, the book where Marco and the gang harass a TV personality so much that he tries to strangle a poodle on live television. Fantastic! We talk about squirrels with Nazi knives, bad French accents, and how Marco is the ideal male gamer. This week’s Fanimail: @dylstonee: Shanna: ...


The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #34

Welcome back to The Speaking Tree, the show where we take a deeper dive into the Animorphs universe! This week we’ll be talking about Animorphs #34: The Prophecy, the Cassie book where her brain gets inhabited by the ghost of Aldrea! We talk about: How would you have gotten the Yeerk fighter out from under the tree/Yeerk pool? How would you use morphing to erase a doodle you made on a piece of homework? How would you use a wolf morph in your own life for purely personal reasons? This...


Animorphs #34: The Prophecy

This week we read Animorphs #34: The Prophecy, the Cassie book where they leave Earth once again, this time with the ghost of Aldrea in Cassie’s head! We talk about the difference between “biology” and “science” and whether or not there actually is a difference, some serious OTP Alerts all around, and the ridiculousness of getting the Chee to cover for you every time you leave the planet. This week’s Fanimail: Ann-Marie: ...


The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #33

We’re back with another episode of The Speaking Tree, this time talking about Animorphs #33: The Illusion! Get ready for a deeper dive into the book where Tobias gets tortured and the gang saves him at the last second. Here are some of the things we covered this week: How would you have purposefully gotten caught by the Yeerks? How would you get out of getting caught smoking at school? How would you use an Andalite morph in your own life for purely personal reasons? This week’s...


Animorphs #33: The Illusion

Time for another Tobias book, finally! We discuss Animorphs #33: The Illusion on this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles, the book were Tobias gets purposefully captured and tortured with his own memories! We talk school dances, what it takes to build a trusting relationship, and, of course, we have an OTP Alert. This week’s Fanimail: @dylstonee: @gaybonez: Check...


TV Series: Episode 17

Mikael is not here this week so it’s up to Tessa, Brayden, and Jarred to wade into the next episode in the Animorphs TV Series: “Not My Problem.” Incidentally, this is also the thought going through Mikael’s head. Get ready for some more Ellimist tomfoolery as Jake jumps back in time to a world where he never became an Animorph. Get ready for some bad twists! This week’s Fanimail: @LegoRats: @KierinAndrews: ...


TV Series: Episode 16

We’re back for more punishment as we dig into Episode 16 of the Animorphs TV Series: “Tobias.” Ironically, this episode is not just about Tobias, despite the title. We delve into some classic bullying, some asinine Andalite antics, and some depressing teenage realities as we try to make sense of this seemingly pointless episode. This week’s Fanimail: Mae: @ElgeneRosetta: ...


TV Series: Episodes 14 and 15

It’s with heavy hearts that we once again revisit the Animorphs television series, picking up where we left off at episodes 14 and 15 titled “The Leader.” Once again, we’ve brought Jarred along for the ride and this time we force him to do all the summarizing so we don’t have to relive this any more than we have to. Stay tuned for discussion about something being so hot it feels cold (or vice versa?), Marco’s mom being Janice from Friends, and how useless Cassie and Rachel are at jumping...


The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #32

This week on The Speaking Tree we talk more about Animorphs #32: The Separation! We SPLIT our attention into the following three questions: If you were the rest of the Animorphs, how would you have handled the split (after you understood what had happened) knowing that you needed to use one of the Rachels for the Anti-Morphing Ray mission? If you had a twin that was, like, the opposite version of you, how would you deal with that? How would you use a starfish morph in your own life for...
