Jen and Rachel return from their hiatus, and are ready to usher in a new era of peace and chillness with a conversation about one of their all-time favorite books, The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith. They get back into the swing of things by discussing alien romance vs erotic horror, Chekov’s vaccine, alien religion, and #thepatriarchy.
Rachel and Jen round out this holiday season with their last episode of the year. While sharing their love for this diamond in the rough, they delve into topics such as handsome Igor, “strong” female heroines, the patriarchy, toxic masculinity, and handsome dragons. Plus, a special surprise for Rachel at the end.
Caution: Here be spoilers… As always, a spoiler warning is included part-way through.
Happy New Year!
Rachel and Jen venture once more into the world of romance, and discuss a book by Fabio, the pinnacle of all romance heroes. They get distracted by the purpose of fantasy elements, misogynist alpha-hole heroes, Jen’s love of gnomes, the decay of heroine characterization, lust over love, and the classic romance novel formula before circling back around to the most important topic of all… Fabio.
Extra NSFW warning, because romance novel.
