Galactic Suburbia Spoilerific: Class

class-cast

New podcast episode to stream or download!

Alex and Tansy pull apart the recent school-set Doctor Who spin off TV show Class, with its YA tropes, diversity, squicky alien creatures and fascinating parent-kid dynamics. But mostly we rave about the awesomeness of Quill. Because she is the best.

Dance, Princes, Dance: Part 5, Front Page Shoes

New episode of our new Castle Charming serial! Part 5 – Front Page Shoes

Welcome back to Castle Charming. Winter is upon us, which means the annual tournament of Rookery is underway, a game that pits Royals against Hounds. Meanwhile, fairies steal castle residents away each night, and persons unknown have run up a mysterious bill for far too many dancing shoes. When you live in a fairy tale kingdom, you have to expect to rescue the occasional prince — but for Kai, Dennis and Ziyi, it’s becoming a habit. Can the boys stop pining after each other long enough to step up as heroes?
