Fellow Youths: Shadowshaper

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 2:45pm

What could be more fun than Daniel José Older’s story of an Afro-Puerto Rican teenager in Brooklyn navigating a whole new world of magic while dealing with the endless machismo of real life? Apparently discussing how to make glue from scratch and the numerous downsides of wearing leather pants if this episode’s tangents have any say in the matter.

Ever wanted to go back in time like ten minutes and not embarrass yourself? This week the trio explore the popular game, Life is Strange, where you can control time and alter the course of a small town (or not). Turns out it’s a hard “not” for Audrey and Kathy. Also discussed: how to spot a video game sociopath, what your actions in video games say about you as a person, and Nicole’s continual exasperation at Audrey and Kathy.

Fellow Youths: Akata Witch

Wed, 08/16/2017 - 10:00am

“Just write ‘The Nigerian Harry Potter’ and be done. That blurb is everywhere” - Nicole. Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor is a seriously great leap into middle-grade/YA fiction to the point where Kathy becomes an incoherent, high-pitched, squealing mess. We also harangue each other about what our worst qualities are, so you know. Mad upbeat.

Fellow Youths: Caraval

Wed, 08/16/2017 - 8:00am

Oh boy! Be sure to listen to this episode if you want to hear the one time Kathy is the calm voice of reason to Audrey and Nicole’s UNYIELDING ANGER about this book. There’s a sinister carnival, supposed “magic”, bland love interests, and many, many unfulfilled literary expectations in Caraval by Stephanie Garber.
