Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Special Edition | A Rest Stop Between SON & TBOL

Bonus - The One With Shadow of Life

Description: Let's take a little break to grab a snack, stretch our legs, sort ourselves out and reflect on our trip through Shadow of Night. Then we'll go on to plan our next journey by establishing a baseline predicated on our collective/individual first-read impressions of The Book of Life, prior to hitting the road! ๐ŸšจWARNING: controversial opinions (what?! Never! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ) live in this episode. Strap in, it may get bumpy in the wagon! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

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 as episodes are released in the US/Canada. ๐Ÿ˜Š  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?"
    This was a Daemon Production
