Content Warning: In this episode we discuss sexual assault and self harm

In episode 9 we are discussing Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

For the first time, J & K have quite different feeling about the ships in this book, but we are both very excited about the upcoming King of Scarswhich will be released on 29 January 2019.

There are some spoilers in this episode for the BBC Sherlock, and there may be a moment where you hear the upstairs neighbors vacuuming.

Below is additional information on some of the topics discussed in this fortnight’s episode:

  • We have mentioned it before, but it deserves repeating: read “How to Spend Your Privilege” by Brittany Packnett
  • We talked about “sowing your seed” in relation to the Apparat, and there is a great video from John Oliver that shows how that money may be used, and how the government protects those who may take advantage and profit from donations
  • J is absolutely in love with Oncat, and here is a bit more information about witch familiars.
  • We might have some real life invisibility cloaks in our future! In Ruin and Rising, Alina is able to make things invisible, and that’s also possible in real life!
