Animorphs #19: The Departure

Tune in this week as The Dork-Bajir Chronicles covers Animorphs #19: The Decision, the one where Cassie decides to leave the Animorphs and trusts a Yeerk way too much!

We dig into the real nitty gritty of the series in what is probably the best Cassie book to date. As she befriends a Controller and even protects her enemy from harm, the Fanimorphs go back and forth over the philosophy of the war and the series itself.

Also, don’t worry: there’s plenty of stupid jokes to tide you over the serious parts.

Here is Mattingly’s original sketch of the cover art, as we discussed this episode: goo.gl/xomt5e

31 – Ghosts w. Devin Smith

Oh so spooky! Devin Smith is here to get down with the spirits, however they may choose to manifest.

We discuss some of the most famous local haunts and why they may or may not be true; we break down our favourite ghost stories; we talk about our own spooky experiences – ghostly or otherwise.

You can let Devin know about what kind of ghost you would be at her Twitter!

30 – Marvel & DC Movies w. Joel Taras

We’re not playing around here. Joel Taras & I sit down to compare our lists ranking ALL of the live-action Marvel and DC comic book movies. That’s right: 82 movies across 7 decades of film-making all broken down in a totally appropriate amount of time to be spent talking about superhero movies.

So strap in and get ready to dive into a conversation that’s almost three times longer than a bunch of movies on this list. Can’t imagine a better way to catch up before Avengers: Infinity War!

Here are the lists.
Ask Joel about more comic book things via his Instagram!

29 – Pizza w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Who else but Sophie Gareau-Brennan could be on the show to talk about how much we love pizza?!

We break down our favourite kinds of pizzas/toppings; we discuss the differences between all the local & international pizza joints; we reveal our own personal pizza histories; all of it as a way to show how much we truly love this glorious category of food.

Perhaps Sophie and I will talk more about food in the future. Perhaps you could begin following us talking about food on Twitter.

28 – Models of Masculinity w. Emanuel Dubbeldam & Sophie Gareau-Brennan

2 returning guests on this episode! Emanuel Dubbeldam & Sophie Gareau-Brennan are here to have a chat about masculinity and what makes a man.

We break down what it takes to be a man the only way we knew how: by using the 5-line chorus of Mulan‘s ‘I’ll Make a Man Out of You’ as our starting model of masculinity. We continue to discuss the gender politics & sexual identity issues raised in the film via the Internet classic: Am I Gay?: A Journey of Self Discovery with Shang (seriously, who made this meme-gem?!). We also talk about the various real-life or fictional men & women in our lives who helped shape our perceptions of masculinity & femininity.

Go follow Emanuel on Twitter and also go follow Sophie’s Twitter for upcoming surprises!

You should also check out Emanuel’s first appearance on WenghTalk when we went over Transgender Questions.

We dive into another “everyone’s a narrator” book as the gang travels back in time via, you guessed it, a Sario Rip. It’s dinos for days on this very special episode about Megamorphs #2: In the Time of Dinosaurs!
