Live From the Gardens: The Solution

The very last episode about the David trilogy! We talk rats and orcas in this bittersweet farewell to the most evil villain the gang has ever faced. Join us for tons of trivia and dope animals facts on this week’s episode of Live from the Gardens about the morphs from Animorphs #22: The Solution!

What does “degloving” a rat mean? Why are orcas so badass? What do these animals do when they’re making love? Classic questions like this are all revealed within!

Hypothetical Question of the Week: How many rats would it take to kill an orca and how would they do it?

Animorphs #22: The Solution

Finally! The David Trilogy comes to a close and so does our discussion of his tragic end! We discuss Animorphs #22: The Solution on this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles!

We pitch a few more alternative solutions to the David problem, argue about how far thought-speak should go, and just generally upset Tessa as the boys take a big dump on Cassie, yet again. Join us for the exciting conclusion of possibly the darkest time in Animorphs story arcs!

Live from the Gardens: The Threat


We talk dragonflies and fleas on this episode of Live from the Gardens about the morphs Animorphs #21: The Threat!

Join us for talk of flea leaping, the artistry of a dragonfly, and the secret fourth host of the show: Darby, the middle ground modesty-centered host. Also, the hosts discover the wonder that is flea circuses and how dragonfly babies, on closer inspection, are actually really messed up!

Animorphs #21: The Threat

We’re back for the second book in the David Trilogy: Animorphs #21: The Threat. Oooh, ominous name. Join Mikael, Tessa, and Brayden for another deep dive into perhaps the most famous story arc in the entire series!

We talk the difference between killing humans versus animals, how elaborate can a hologram trick ACTUALLY be, and listen as Brayden slowly excuses more and more of David’s behaviour. We also go over our theories of what the Animorphs could have done other offer David membership in the gang.

Live from the Gardens: The Discovery

This week on Live from the Gardens, we call in our snake expert to walk us through some crazy snake trivia! Listen in as Brayden and Mikael try to understand these mysterious reptiles and try to forget how horrible it is that David kept a cobra in a cardboard box under his bed (see last week’s episode if that statement made no sense to you).

If you think you’ll be offended by hearing about how they make snake skin or the existence of snakes with legs, don’t listen to this one…seriously.

Animorphs #20: The Discovery

Finally: THE DAVID TRILOGY BEGINS! The Dork-Bajir Chronicles begins perhaps its darkest journey yet as it delves into the first of the three David books: Animorphs #20: The Discovery!

We talk sociopathic friends we had as children, upsets in the Rachelco OTP, and just how dumb the Animorphs behaved in this book. If you’re into hearing Tessa and Brayden fighting in a maybe=not-so-professional way, this episode’s for you.

TV Series: Episode 7 and 8

Our first television journey is almost at an end! To cap off the month, we watch episodes 7 and 8 of the Animorphs TV show: “The Escape” and “The Alien.” Things get rowdy as the three of us (plus Jarred) talk about hospital escapades and how Ax can act so incredibly stupidly.

We are once again joined by non-Animorphs-reader Jarred McClure from the 2 Nerds in a Basement podcast (spoiler, he confirms some very real theories Mikael has about Marco and Rachel in this episode)! You can find more of his stuff at collectivelegacy.org/2nerdsinabasement or on instagram at @vanillajayy.

TV Series: Episode 5 and 6

The month of madness continues as we delve into Episodes 5 and 6 of the Animorphs TV Series: “Between Friends” and “The Message”! Get ready for some more great “morphing” animations and the words “Andalite cousin” being spoken like a hundred times.

TV Series: Episode 3 and 4

We’re back for more! We jump in to Episodes 3 and 4 of the Animorphs TV series: “Underground” and “On the Run”! These are the episodes where the gang infiltrates the cult–I mean totally believable front for the Yeerks–called The Sharing and also the ones where they lose the Andalite’s disc and Marco has to look for it in a Dumpster. Woops!
