This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Diana Gabaldon's Outlander! Oooh sexxxy! Starz has popularized this fantasy/romance/period drama and season 4 starts VERY SHORTLY.

Morgan is a big fan and is currently plowing through Book 4 in preparation for Season 4. Mic thinks it all sounds slightly ridiculous, but agrees that Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) is a god among men (SPOILERS: we talk about this fact. A. Lot).

So, if you're into time travelling, fantasy, period pieces, messy families, comedy and romance and more, you should check it out! It's less about romance as time goes on, so if that's holding you back DON'T LET IT.

PLUGS:

Mic just saw Room (he's late, okay) and thinks EVERYONE SHOULD SEE IT. It's beautiful, sad, inspiring, and makes you value your life and relationships. He gives this his only 10/10 on his summer watch list!

Morgan want's to plug the book she got out of a free-library in Atlanta - "The Friday Night Knitting Club": Sounds......lame? Actually sweet and very good. Family drama, and said to be "Steel Magnolias set in Manhatten".....so. There's that.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are actually wrapping up our Harry Potter talks with Part 2 of our Deathly Hallows discussion. It's bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We've got all the feelings, all the hype, lots of jokes (we coat our sadness with comedy), predictions about futures & musings on the past. Also shade. SO MUCH SHADE.

Hot takes:
Hermione is NOT a virgin, but Harry and Ron for sure are (for sure!).
If you read Harry Potter backwards, the satanic messaging becomes clear. FACT.

OKAY.  We will now commence... 
BURNING THE ENTIRE SERIES IN EFFiGY!!! Praise Be!!! May the Lord Open!!!

GROSS. 
Sorry.
Religious Fit.

Hope you've enjoyed making your way through Harry Potter with us over the last 1.5 years. It's been great on our end. NOW, onward to filler episodes! :) 

PLUGS:

Mic wants to remind you of his strong stance: FUG THE EFFING EPILOGUE.

ALSO: check out our Voldemort Origins of the Heir episode, and also check out the full length movie on YOUTUBE!

This week Beauty and the Bitch are taking on Part 1 of our Harry Potter finale (of the original series...we'll find more HP to talk about!). It's bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We have so many emotions about the first time we read this book (Mic has only read it once because he doesn't like for things to end). We've got all the feelings, all the hype, and some movie chatter (some good, some BAD). TBH, we were not into Part 1 of the film. So sorry (not sorry).

Thank you for following our journey with Harry (AND HERMIONE!); please enjoy jokes, banter and information about one of our favorite things in existence (and check out part 2 next week!).

PLUGS:

Mic thinks you should read "The Belgariad" series by David Eddings to scratch that fantasy/coming of age itch. This amazing series is a fantasy classic. If you love Harry Potter, then you'll probably love this too!

Also, if you are in need of help or assistance or want to know what resources are available in your community (food needs, rent assistance, homelessness, etc.), please call 2-1-1. THIS IS A GREAT RESOURCE AND YOU CAN CALL ANYWHERE IN THE US! <3

This week Beauty and the Bitch are PUMPED to talk more Patrick Rothfuss news! Part Two of our Kingkiller Chronicle coverage includes all the latest internet gossip on the upcoming film and TV adaptations and what we know about Book Three (practically nothing, TBH). We do a little fantasy casting (BECAUSE WE LOVE TO DREAM BIG) and spill some T on what we love and don't love about The Wise Man's Fear.

Are you obsessed with Kvothe and his journey? Not sure if it's worthwhile? This is a 98% spoiler-free discussion that we handle very diplomatically because we are VERY responsible adults. So tune in even if you're not completely caught up!

PLUGS:

Read "The Name of the Wind" & "The Wise Man's Fear" (DUH).

Morgan thinks you should read "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" by Mark Manson. This is a great book for high strung, high anxiety planogrammers (IT HER). Have you tried giving less fucks? Let's try together!

**Mic wants to plug not giving a fuck, but giving a DAMN.

ALSO, he thinks you should watch "Pat Prounounes King Killer Names" while you read the books, because all fantasy names = hard-ass-ridiculousness. Don't embarrass yourself!
