Animorphs #5: The Predator

Marco finally stars in his own book in Animorphs #5: The Predator, just in time for Fanimorphs: The Dork-Bajir Chronicles to dissect it, piece by piece.

We ponder over Marco’s apparent Brooklyn accent, what 90s material Marco’s dad touches himself to, and the horror of being ripped apart. We’re your one-stop shop for accidental racism and constantly interrupting each other!

Live from the Gardens: The Message

This week in Live from the Gardens we talk about the Seagull and the Common Dolphin, the two main morphs from Animorphs #4: The Message.

Strap in for a lively discussion about how dolphin throats work, the best way to listen to man-made whale songs, and a breakdown of why seagull sex is stupid-looking. Also, Live from the Gardens now has quizzes and stuff!

Animorphs #4: The Message

Animorphs #4: The Message has a lot of poignant, character-building moments, most of which we tear down and humiliate in this episode of Fanimorphs: The Dork-Bajir Chronicles.

We mock the Animorph cover models, the absurdity of the term “great ones,” and the issue of consent when absorbing 13-year-old human DNA. Tune in this week for a deep dive into the perfect storm that is the fourth wave of the Animorphs series.

Live from the Gardens: The Encounter

This Live from the Gardens is centered around two morphs found in Animorphs #3: The Encounter: the Red-Tailed Hawk and the Gray Wolf.

We focus in on how Yeerks spot the subtleties of animal sex by watching Youtube videos, whether or not birds can smell, and Brayden achieves climax live on the cast. Also, buckle up for cloacal moaning, lifting your leg to pee, and how to see superteal!

Animorphs #3: The Encounter

The Fanimorphs sink their teeth into Animorphs #3: The Encounter and bite off a piece of perma-morphed Tobias’ mental health journey.

Get ready to cry some emotional tears as we recap our most tragic hero’s meanderings through coming to terms with his new hawk self and still contributing to Animorph missions. We go over such topics as Marco’s depression strength, Tobias’ general angstyness, and what it’s like to be the doves in a John Woo film.

Live from the Gardens: The Visitor

This week’s Live from the Gardens features the Fanimorphs gang discussing the Northern Short-Tailed Shrew and the Domestic Cat, as featured in Animorphs #2: The Visitor.

Listen in as we argue over the size of lizards and mice and wince at the details of feline reproduction. If you enjoy spiny genitalia and learning some really surprising things about shrews, stay tuned for more near-expert level animal talk.

Animorphs #2: The Visitor

We’re back for more! The gang discusses Animorphs #2: The Visitor in this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles, including such relevant details as how to terrorize a vice principal, what kind of beast it takes to scare a Yeerk, and the body horror of a Controller losing control.

Why do Controllers watch blank screens if they’re trying to blend in? What is the nature of morphing in relation to addiction? How did NO ONE see these kids morphing sick animals in the middle of the suburbs? Find out the answers to all these questions and more in this episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles!

Thanks for listening!

Live from the Gardens: The Invasion

This week is our inaugural Live from the Gardens! Listen in as the Fanimorphs talk about how budding Animorphs might better blend in while in morph by going over some key details of the animals acquired in Animorphs #1: The Invasion.

Get ready to delve into the world of the Domestic Dog and the Green Anole Lizard: color blindness, lizard smarts, and general reproductive talk are what await you in this episode.

Fair warning: there is and will probably continue to be a fair bit of discussion centering around animal sex in this and future episodes so…strap in, I guess.

Animorphs #1: The Invasion

In this extra long, extra good first episode, we begin our journey into the sci-fi masterpiece known as Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. Brayden laboriously covers the plot of Animorphs #1: The Invasion while Mikael and Tessa poke and prod him for pronunciations of alien species and other first impressions he might have.
