This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Neil Gaiman’s CLASSIC Neverwhere. Originally written as a BBC Two miniseries, Gaiman also novelized the script into a book that came out along with the show (PRO TIP THAT SURPRISES NO ONE: the novel is way better).

Mic and Morgan discuss a shared love of Gaiman (and gay men), while dissecting Neverwhere’s intricacies.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander! Oooh sexxxy!! Starz has popularized this fantasy/romance/period drama and season 4 starts VERY SHORTLY.

Morgan is a big fan and is currently plowing through Book 4 in preparation for Season 4. Mic thinks it all sounds slightly ridiculous, but agrees that Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) is a god among men (SPOILERS: We talk about this fact. A. Lot).

So, if you’re into time travelling, fantasy, period pieces, messy families, comedy and romance and more, you should check it out! It’s less about romance as time goes on, so if that’s holding you back DON’T LET IT.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are actually wrapping up our Harry Potter talks with Part 2 of our Deathly Hallows discussion. It’s bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We’ve got all the feelings, all the hype, lots of jokes (we coat our sadness with comedy), predictions about futures & musings on the past. Also shade. SO MUCH SHADE.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are taking on Part 1 of our Harry Potter finale (of the original series…we’ll find more HP to talk about!). It’s bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We have so many emotions about the first time we read this book (Mic has only read it once because he doesn’t like for things to end). We’ve got all the feelings, all the hype, and some movie chatter (some good, some BAD). TBH, we were not into Part 1 of the film. So sorry (not sorry)!

Thank you for following our journey with Harry (AND HERMIONE!); please enjoy jokes, banter and information about one of our favorite things in existence (and check out part 2 next week!)

This week Beauty and the Bitch are PUMPED to talk more Patrick Rothfuss news! Part Two of our Kingkiller Chronicle coverage includes all the latest internet gossip on the upcoming film and TV adaptations and what we know about Book Three (practically nothing, TBH). We do a little fantasy casting (BECAUSE WE LOVE TO DREAM BIG) and spill some T on what we love and don’t love about The Wise Man’s Fear.

Are you obsessed with Kvothe and his journey? Not sure if it’s worthwhile? This is a 98% spoiler-free discussion that we handle very diplomatically because we are VERY responsible adults. So tune in even if you’re not completely caught up!

This week Beauty and the Bitch are joined by their most popular guest: a bottle of wine! Okay, but really, we record on Wednesday and it just *happens* to be hump day.

This week we are HYPED to discuss one of our all-time favorite fantasy books, Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind. Rothfuss is one of the most popular fantasy authors writing today (alongside Brandon Sanderson & George R.R. Martin) and we are waiting (impatiently) for the conclusion of his trilogy!

We dive into the story arc, character archetypes, feminism (or lack thereof), our fave plot lines/characters, whats going on in the world of Rothfuss and SO MUCH MORE.

We will be covering The Wise Man’s Fear (Book 2) in our next episode, so stay tuned for information on that and on the  upcoming book-to-screen adaptation!

Beauty and the Bitch have a collective revelation: we have missed out on years of books by Terry Brooks. Mic has read a few and Morgan has read none, but SOMEHOW we still manage to have opinions about everything.

Join us as we binge “The Shannara Chronicles”, have feelings about Terry Brooks impressive (and intimidating) output, discuss the current state of fantasy and lots of other shenanigans and bitchiness!
