This week, on our FINAL episode of Live from the Gardens, we talk sperm whales and giant squid, two of the enormous, monstrous morphs from Animorphs #27: The Exposed, the book we read last week!

TV Series: Episode 13

We watch the “The Forgotten,” the thirteenth (and cursed) episode of the Animorphs TV show with friend of the show Jarred McClure! This is the one where Rachel gets lost in the woods after getting amnesia and meets that crazy ex-Controller as well as a handsome boy who tries to put a slug in her ear.

Listener warning: we talk about crackers a weird amount in this one.

TV Series: Episode 9 and 10

We’re back for more punishment as The Dork-Bajir Chronicles (and Jarred) take on more of the godawful mistake that was the Animorphs TV Series. This week we discuss episodes 9 and 10, titled The Capture Part 1 and Part 2, the one where Jake gets a Yeerk in his head!

You can find more of Jarred’s stuff at www.collectivelegacy.org/2nerdsinabasement or on instagram at @vanillajayy.

Live from the Gardens: The Next Passage

Well, at least these books are good for SOMEthing! We talk about a bunch of the morphs from Alternamorphs: The Next Passage on this episode of Live from the Gardens! We cover everything from komodo dragons to the mythical Howlers! Splice in a healthy dose of puns and a dash of us interrupting each other as usual and you get the perfect episode of Fanimorphs!

Hypothetical Question: If you had to force one of the hosts to be stuck in a morph forever, which one would it be and why?

Alternamorphs #2: The Next Passage

Oh no. OH NO. Another one?? That’s right: it’s time for another Choose Your Own Adventure escapade as The Dork-Bajir Chronicles reads Alternamorphs #2: The Next Passage!

This is the one where you play as David but in an alternate timeline through some questionable Ellimist interference. Don’t worry though! It makes just as little sense as the first Alternamorphs, only with characters your recognize this time!
