S2: E9- Intoversion and Extroversion
Clare and Hannah may look exactly the same, but they're a lot different under the surface. One of them is introverted, and the other is extroverted. I wonder if you can guess which is which?

S2: E8- The Human Chronicles?
Clare and Hannah had so much to say about the Martian Chronicles, we decided to record another episode about it. We talk almost exclusively about Hannah's favorite story in the book, and we manage to sneak a C.S. Lewis reference in there, too. This one gets pretty existential (which it usually does if you let Hannah talk for too long).

S2: E2- The Great Movie Countdown (Part 2)
Clare and Hannah continue their epic journey through their 21 favorite movies. That's 21 for each of them, so according to their math skills, that's 57 movies... or thereabouts. Our movies include such famous lines as, "Do, or do not. There is no try," "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti," and "Waffles! She's frozen with fear!" Yeah, that last one seems out of place to us, too.

S2: E1- The Great Movie Countdown (Part 1)
In this first episode of our second season, we return from our holiday break to geek out about our top 21 favorite movies. We chose that number for no particular reason, obviously. We won't give away any of the movie titles, but here are some hints: a llama in a diner, Grabthar's Hammer, and the man who cried, "RIIIICK!"

Episode 24: The Ocean of Anime
Clare and Hannah review some classic anime like Akira and Princess Mononoke, try to say "my hovercraft is full of eels" in Japanese and, as an all-powerful wizard once did, ask, "what's the point of living if I can't be beautiful?" We are certainly not experts on the subject of anime, but as always, we talk about it with great enthusiasm!

Clare and Hannah talk about the horror genre, its influence on society, and why the genre that is often disregarded as "trash" and "pulp" is actually really important to our development as human beings. We also discuss dualism, the possibility of a haunted ball pit, and finally promote the book that Clare wrote!

Episode 22: We Read Poetry (in a serious manner, of course)
Clare and Hannah take a look at some of their favorite poetry and try to analyze it together. Very wholesome. We feel smarter already. Some of the poets featured include E.E. Cummings, Dylan Thomas, and Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Vogon Galactic Constructor Fleet.
