Hello, magical listeners! We’re coming at you this week with a discussion of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, the first in the Brooklyn Brujas series. J & K discuss the failed system of incarceration and the implications of those systems on brown people, beautiful world building, and Latin American folklore. There may also be a few tangents along the way… And there are some spoilers for the movie Coco.

There aren’t a ton of show notes this week. See you in a fortnight!


We talked about the smells we get from YA authors. What are some of your favorite #SmellsLikeYa moments?
