*Etta James voice* Aaaaaaaaatttttt laaaaaaaaaassssssttttt, our podcast for 408 “God Complex” is up!!
We were thrilled to be joined by two very special guests, @hawthornewhisperer and @knowlesian, who are smart-as-heck analysts of the show and shared all kinds of brilliant insights with us.
Thank you so much, ladies and listeners, for your patience in waiting for this one! The delay in getting this recap uploaded was because having multiple people exponentially increases the editing hassle, but we promise it’s worth it because these ladies are terrific.
We covered 18th century British colonialism, Abby’s emotional breakdown, Bill Cadogan’s love of wordplay, Clarke and Murphy’s relationship, Sassy Nihilist Jasper, how to rave responsibly (hint: bring a backpack), and tons of speculation about where the season might be going next, both things we’re hoping for (Becca flashbacks!) and things we’re side-eyeing (Commander Clarke???). Come join the lady nerd party!
