Merlin (1998) w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Ep. 98

Sophie Gareau-Brennan of the We Watch Food podcast is here to talk about a blast from her past: the 1998 TV miniseries Merlin.

We discuss how time changes our perspectives on certain media, how well this Sam Neil as Merlin adaptation does (even with it being made-for-90s-TV), and what our personal mentor wizards were growing up.

TV Series: Episode 19

We’re back at it, folks: time to tackle yet another episode of the masterpiece that is the Animorphs TV Series. This time we talk about episode 19 called Face Off: Part 1. There are three parts to this arc and, not surprisingly, there aren’t really any face offs to speak of in the whole thing. This is also yet another showing of how terrible TV show Ax is.

Oh also, Jarred will be joining us, as usual!

Game of Thrones (Season 8) w. Jodie McRobbie & Dustin Meisinger

Ep. 97

Jodie & Dustin & I are back from our previous episode covering Game of Thrones Seasons 1-7…and now it’s time to talk about Season 8.

Now that we’ve had time for the ashes to settle, we break down how we feel about the final season and how it fits into the series overall (numbers included), we address the highs, lows, and middles of these six episodes, and we revisit our hopeless predictions from before the season aired.

Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Ep. 58

We’re talking about the 2019 Netflix film staring Ali Wong & Randall Park: Always Be My Maybe.

Sophie & Mitch gush about their new favourite movie, how refreshing it is for a mid-level romantic comedy that doesn’t just repeat tired tropes, and how these characters’ relationships with food reflect their inner struggles and all that good stuff.

TV Series: Episode 18

We’re still chipping away at this block, people. Today we talk about the Animorphs TV series once again, this time about Episode 18: The Release, the one where the Kandrona is busted and Tom has a sore tummy because of it.

Also, this is the one with the kind of badass teacher who has a weird understanding with Jake and the rest of the bandits.

Designer, illustrator, and spoon-maker Rachel Beyer is here to talk about all that.

We discuss the meditative qualities of spending 100+ hours on a single project, the difficulties of brainstorming vs. editing, and how your art can take on a life of its own one way or another.

Okja (2017)

Ep. 57

We watched 2017’s Okja and now we’re going to talk about how we’ve been processing it.

We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of this film, the difference between making a movie about meat vs. one about corporatism, and we dive into the world of meat alternative burgers!

CW: This movie has a 3rd act that is essentially a pig-POV inside a breeding centre/slaughterhouse and Okja is personified to a degree that we wanted to ensure folks with sensitivities towards physical/sexual abuse are aware that those topics come up (around the 30 minute mark).

This week we answer the following questions:

How would you have taken down the Sea Blade?

How would you use morphing to get your crush to call you at all hours of the night?

How would you use an orca morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Lifestyle Portraits & Boudoir Photography w. Elise Marie

Ep. 95

Photographer Elise Marie tells us all about lifestyle portraits, boudoir photography, and how they’re surprisingly similar – in terms of storytelling.

We talk about how one can discover an art form out of nowhere, what goes into creating a space for your models to play within, and how important confidence is for both the photographer and the subject.
