Episode 15: Survival Strategies from the All Souls Trilogy

5/16/2020
No doubt about it: These are challenging times. We turned to our favorite book series, the All Souls Trilogy, for the best survival strategies. We hope it helps. #WeAreAllSouls When we recorded our last podcast episode we certainly didn’t think that our next one would be recorded in the midst of a pandemic and, yet, here we are. In a shockingly small period of time, we’ve been thrown into a world that is barely recognizable. People are working on the front lines, people aren’t working at...

Episode 14: Sssh! Secrets in the All Souls Trilogy

3/5/2020
Is it ever good to keep a secret? Are secrets really lies in disguise? We discuss this and more in our Secrets in the All Souls Trilogy podcast. Come join us! You can’t go more than about 25 pages in Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy without someone tripping over a secret—either one they kept or one they discovered or one they are being forced to maintain. The whole damn looking for Ashmole 782 is about trying to uncover the secret(s) that it holds for daemons, witches, and vampires....

Episode 13: What We Hope to See in A Discovery of Witches Season 2

1/5/2020
As we eagerly await the arrival of A Discovery of Witches Season 2, we decided to talk about the scenes we hope make it from the book to the show. Listen in to see if you agree. This podcast episode was especially fun for us because we actually recorded it in the same room rather than from three different states in the U.S. Not only that, but we were joined by our honorary witchy friend, Denise, who is also a fan of Deb Harkness' amazing All Souls Trilogy. Yup, four witchy women in one room,...

Episode 12: A Look Back at All Souls Con 2019

8/26/2019
Weren't able to get to All Souls Con 2019 in Wales? No worries. We've got you covered in this Look Back at All Souls Con 2019 podcast. One of us — okay, it was Nikki, and our trusty intern, Kaitlyn — took the trek over the pond and made it to All Souls Con 2019 in Cardiff, Wales. Amid the tornado doodles (explanation in podcast), Nikki took notes, lots of them, and she shares all her details about the Con and what happened. It's a virtual trip to the Con, with Janet and Ashley sharing their...

Episode 11: Adapting A Discovery of Witches for TV

7/20/2019
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women and our podcast on Adapting A Discovery of Witches for TV. The material from any book takes on a different feel once it is adapted for the screen and the first season of A Discovery of Witches is no exception. In this podcast episode we’re going to dig into all those differences. We don’t want to frame this conversation in a way where we pit the book against the show because that kind of comparison isn’t fair to either medium or our favorite author, Deborah...

Episode 10: The Use of Music in A Discovery of Witches, Season 1

4/16/2019
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 10: The Use of Music in A Discovery of Witches, Season 1. Music plays a critical role in setting the scene for a TV show or movie and nowhere is that more obvious than in A Discovery of Witches. Gifted composer Rob Lane wrote the score and you’ll hear his music woven through nearly every scene. We could devote an entire podcast just to that. For this episode though, we’re talking about the creative use of other music in the season, the music...

Episode 9: An Interview with Deborah Harkness

2/7/2019
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 9: The Deborah Harkness Interview. Really do we need to say anything more? Recently we had the opportunity to spend 30 minutes with Deborah Harkness talking about A Discovery of Witches — the best-selling books and the already-super popular TV adaptation by Bad Wolf TV. (The show was the most successful show to date for both Sundance Now and Shudder, the streaming channels that made the show available to American and Canadian audiences.) One...

Episode 8: The A Word

1/10/2019
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Episode 8: The A Word, our episode about our hopes and dreams for the TV adaptation of Deborah Harkness' A Discovery of Witches. With the TV adaptation of A Discovery of Witches about to become available on Sundance Now and Shudder for U.S. and Canadian fans (and fans-to-be), we decided we needed to go a step beyond our blog post about the eight scenes we hope to see adapted from the book and talk more fully about our hopes for the show. Among the things we...

Episode 7: The T Word

10/26/2018
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Episode 7: The T Word, our Time’s Convert review. We discuss what we loved, our favorite quotes, and what made us go hmmmm. We veered a bit off course from our usual podcast thematic format to do a review of Deborah Harkness’ new bestseller, Time’s Convert. The short version is WE LOVED THIS BOOK! But that would be a rather short podcast wouldn’t it? So here’s breakdown of what we discuss: our favorite quotes, what we liked about the three interwoven...

Episode 6: The S Word

9/5/2018
Welcome to the All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 6: The S Word, in which we discuss the power of scent. Scent plays a powerful role in our perception of the world around us. Scent transports us to different times and places. It stimulates our salivary glands and make our mouths water. Scent warns us that danger is near. None of this is surprising when you consider that smell is the most sensitive of our senses and the first to develop. Whether it’s Matthew’s cloves and cinnamon or...

Episode 5: The F Word, Part Deux

6/14/2018
Welcome to the All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 5: The F Word, Part Deux, in which we discuss fathers —the good, the bad, and everything in between. In May, we did a special Mother’s Day episode and we had so much fun that it only felt fair to show the fathers some love. So in this episode we discuss the fathers of the All Souls Trilogy and the special brand of love that they bring to their children. If you’ve been keeping track (and faithfully subscribing — you ARE faithfully...

Episode 4: The D Word

5/30/2018
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 4: The D Word. In this episode we discuss desire and how it impacts just about everything in the All Souls Trilogy. Deborah Harkness gave us a lot to talk about in this episode. We discuss how desire impacts characters differently, how Diana learns to harness her desire (and in the process comes to a better understanding of herself), and how desire serves to motivate us in ways that we might not think about. As usual, we sneak in some...

Episode 3: The M Word

5/9/2018
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 3: The M Word. This episode is dedicated to all the strong mothers, surrogate mothers, and adoptive mothers in the All Souls Trilogy. Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy is about many things but it is above all else an ode to strong women — and the mothers who raised them. Since we’ve benefited from the love of our own mothers, our friends’ mothers, and women who weren’t our mothers but still made big impressions on our lives, we...

Episode 2: The F Word

4/24/2018
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 2: The F Word. In this episode we discuss why fear is perhaps THE emotion that Diana (and others) need to face in order to move forward and discover their true selves . No one likes to be afraid and we all would prefer to avoid fear at all costs. In that sense, fear is the great equalizing emotion. But what if facing our fears was the best — the only — way forward? Our best option for getting unstuck? For large parts of her life...

Episode 1: The O Word

2/25/2018
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 1: The O Word. In this episode we discuss why Outlander fans should run, not walk, to read the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. We met over Outlander and now we’re adding to our obsession list with the All Souls Trilogy. In this, our FIRST!!!!, podcast, we discuss how the book series are similar, how they're different, and, most importantly, why we almost guarantee that if you like Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, you’ll fall for...
