Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 46! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 22 of Shadow of Night

The moon phases from maiden to mother to crone.

Take 46 - The One With the Daughter of the Moon

Description: SON ch 22
This chapter is so jam-packed with different story lines, that we had no clue what to name it! There's the Rede, and Diana's new little gathering of witches that will help her with her magic. There's Jack Blackfriars, and everything that goes with taking him on as an additional household member. There's Father Hubbard; he's come a-callin' and Diana and Matthew remain quite wary of him. There's some science, between Gregor Mendel and Mary Sidney, we wind up like the kids with blank stares on their faces mentioned in this chapter! There's also a huge loss. OH! And there is real-life breaking news in the middle of the episode! Please enjoy -- prepare to take it in shifts. It's a long one!

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read All Souls universe books, including the trilogy (A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, The Book of Life), and  Time's Convert + snippits from The World of All Souls. If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  Please be advised, we will approach the television series (A Discovery of Witches) the same way when it is released in the US/Canada. 😊  Let's do this. *Note - this podcast is labeled 'explicit'

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
