On the Pod this week #52

A weekly wrap post for podcasts I listen to. It is a complement to the ongoing Podcast rec posts, with the difference that these are much more spoilery!

Haven’t done much of listening in the past two weeks, TBH, so it is mostly catching up on latest episodes of some podcasts

Current podcasts

Supernatural Sexuality with Dr Seabrooke

Episode 7 – Barriers

“Dr Seabrooke deals with Jewish vampires in a christian world, Dryads and human hayfever, and talks long-distance romance and meet-cutes.”

Definitely hit the nail on the head with the Jewish vampire thing! Reminded me a bit of Simon Lewis from Shadowhunters having a different reaction, compared to Christian vampires.

Episode 8 – A Relationship without legs

“Dr Seabrooke discusses how to keep friends and partners engaged when the partner isn’t visible, helps a mermaid make good decisions about her body, and talks through commitment with a flighty ghost and her partner.”

I loved Dr Seabrooke’s inventive take on solving the non-visible partner thing with modern technology! As for the mermaid story, which felt like reading a r/relationships post (the usual solution for which is ‘dump him’), I was also like ‘this needs a whole man disposal service’. Honestly, asking for more adjustments from someone who is already making so many adjustments towards a relationship, expecting to lose one sense for it? Nah, bye!

The Axe & The Crown

E205: Off and Running

“When Stan starts taking an interest in local politics, Gubbin is his usual cynical self, but Betula is intrigued.”

I honestly thought that STAN would be running, but Betula taking an interest in local politics is a turn I didn’t expect! Still, I think it would be interesting to see her be a politician, considering her side job *eyes*

The Penumbra Podcast

Episode 3.05 – Juno Steel and the Tools of Rust (Part 2)

All dressed in evergreen
Ah yes, the birth of Spring
What will your garden bring?”

This episode had me deep in my feels *clenches fist* M’Tendere’s and Jet’s personal arcs and their remorse over that incident 20 years ago? Jet being declared aro-ace in canon? That ending? That beautiful song????? *sob*
