Dynasty til I Die Nasty | Overwatch League

2/7/2018
More
Ally and Lulu take forever recording and editing their Overwatch League podcast due to the fact that 4 days out of the week were spent watching OWL, and the other 3 days were spent playing the game itself. However, finally, they were able to come together to spit some hard truths about the game. What makes it fun, what makes it scary, and how to improve! Feel free to add Lulu in-game, heylu#1288, just let them know you're a listener! They also talk about their favorite teams in the OWL,...

Living in the Woods like Goblins | The Winter People

1/17/2018
More
Ally and Lulu take on The Winter People by Jennifer McMahonand they were blown away. A story full of grief that gets twisted to an unbelievable horror by those unwilling to accept the finality of death. Between falling for wicked schemes and throwing blame where it didn't belong, Lulu and Ally tear one character to shreds, while also praising two for being true ride-or-dies. Also, Lulu finds herself once again having to remind folks to a) not include spoilers in their goodreads reviews,...

A Cheesecake in the Shoe Aisle | Penny Dreadful

1/10/2018
More
Farewell Penny Dreadful! New Year, New Beginnings, but before that, we must say goodbye to Penny Dreadful as Ally and Lulu finally sit down to discuss the final 5 episodes of the show, full spoilers. Unfortunately, guest host Lisa was unavailable, but she does have some mighty strong thoughts on the finale, which can be found on her tumblr. Lulu picks up her last trash child of the series, really falling in love with the actor's brilliant psychological and physical portrayal of such a...

Past Me Did Me A Solid | Best of 2017

12/20/2017
More
Ally and Lulu talk about their favorite books, shows, movies, and more of 2017! It might not all be new, but it was new to them so expect some classics on the list. Favorite books include previous podcast books, and characters that tend to have personality traits in common (for Lulu at least). Comic book movies win big with the hosts, and tv shows were sorely lacking. Their fave youtubers and podcasters sure did have a lot of good boys... Next week! Hop on back as they finish up Penny...

Macon the Choice | Beautiful Creatures pt2

12/13/2017
More
Ally and Lulu finish up Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and are sorely disappointed with the ending. They discuss the mixed messages that reverberated throughout the book, as well as the depressing theme the book ended on. Is there really no chance for change? For breaking out of the mold we are born into? Lulu waxes on about her light of her life, Ridley, while Ally throws her hat in (and star ratings of this book) with Macon. Next week marks the end of Penny...

Benignly Condescending | Beautiful Creatures pt1

11/29/2017
More
BE WARNED! LIKE ALL OF OUR PODCASTS, IT IS FULL SPOILERS!! Southern Gothic meets YA fantasy in Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. So, it should have been an easy hit with both Ally and Lulu, and though both are enjoying it, they do stop and realize that they are clearly over the target market age. They discuss various character tropes used in the first half of the novel, and whether they work well or detract from the story, as well as the recurring motifs of brother...

Like a Bitch Eating Crackers | Dragon Age Inquisition

11/8/2017
More
BE WARNED! LIKE ALL OF OUR PODCASTS, IT IS FULL SPOILERS!! Lulu hands the reins over to Ally as she hosts this week's podcast, alongside guest hosts Lisa and Emily, on Dragon Age Inquisition! Plenty to gab and fume about as they break apart what made Inquisition amazing (hello Dorian Pavus -- light of everyone's life), and where it stumbled (ah yes, the wonderfully mapped Hinterlands with surprise higher level Rift in the middle of a needed zone). They touch upon companions, love...

You Rat Bitch | The Haunted Forest Tour

10/31/2017
More
BE WARNED! LIKE ALL OF OUR PODCASTS, IT IS FULL SPOILERS!! Abandoning the original book chosen for Spooktober, Ally and Lulu pick up The Haunted Forest Tour by Jeff Strand and James A. Moore and boy, was that the right decision! The prologue alone induced more creeps and spooks than the entirety of The Haunting of Ashburn House. There were gory bits (though not too gory), there were creepy crawlies, deaths, murder, torture, but also team building exercises and chuckles along the way. The...

The Before Times | The Haunting of Ashburn House

10/25/2017
More
Ally and Lulu searched for a spooky book, found The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates, were excited, were disappointed. Ride this wild rollercoaster of emotions as they try to figure out what went wrong, where this takes place, and whether they'll actually finish the book (which they've never had to consider before!) ((Also, sorry it's a week late! Vlog coming soon detailing changes happening but blah blah work work work is killing Lulu))
