Podcast2013-web-image

In honor of our first ever Thanksgiving podcast, the Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy B got together and stuffed their faces with a bunch of pumpkin flavored food. Join us on this magical, pumpkin journey while we discuss The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the craziness of Black Friday. Also, we mix pumpkin syrup with whiskey.

Ep. 61 True Love and Cleavage

The hot topic of the week is the man in Florida who allegedly ate the face of another man while being butt nekkid. Again, we discuss the possibilities of a zombie apocalypse. Fortune Cookie gives a report on Fanime and true love happening right before her very eyes at the convention. Fanfic Theatre: Hunger Games.

Ep. 53 Aliens and Turtles

Our Lady Geeks discuss the upcoming ‘Ninja Turtles’ movie, produced by Michael Bay, and tries to imagine how epic and explode-y it’s going to get. Alien turtles, anyone? This episode is also full of old lady creepiness. Fanfic Theater: Doctor Who and Godzilla.

I’m 17 Again

No, I am not referring to the movie staring the sexy Zac Efron. I am referring to the way two books in particular have made me feel. My favorite type of story is one that leaves you feeling bittersweet, lusting for more, and may even have you rolling around on the floor because of the drama. A good story is one that takes you out of your own world and puts you in one where in alternate universe you can be the hero. The last time I felt this way was when I was a teenager reading books like His Dark Materials and Harry Potter, fantasy and science fiction books full of love, fighting, and purpose.

The two books I am talking about are Legend by Marie Lu and Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  I devoured these books. They had everything I want in a story; a strong female character, the fight between good vs. evil, and of course a love interest.

Ep. 39 Rescue All the Cats

The Lady Defective Geeks discuss young adult books and the dystopian genre. They discuss several books like ‘Legend’, ‘Hunger Games’, ‘1984’ and ‘The Giver.’ We also try to figure out what we would do if we were thrown into a Battle Royale type situation. Basically, we would all probably die quick deaths and Sailor Mizz just wants to rescue all the cats.
