Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 88! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 19 of The Book of Life

Take 88 - The One With the Paterfamilias

Description: Andrew Hubbard, Diana, and Matthew discuss their newly-realized family dynamic, and grapple with what must be done in order to protect the latest de Clermont black sheep -- Jack. We also fell victim to a self-inflicted Mandela effect! Wow! Maybe we should have reviewed the chapter prior to jumping in front of our mics, eh? ๐Ÿคฃ Later on in the episode (SIFTS), we discuss our "soft place(s) to land." We're curious...what's yours?

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'

  • All Andrew knows is that Benjamin was looking for the book. Then Gerbert’s brass head was brought up (suss!)
  • They discuss the plan to keep Jack from Benjamin
  • The Paterfamilias. Matthew steps up.
  • It seems Philippe thought the Romans needed some family discipline.
  • Matthew is the paterfamilias.  Hubbard, is reluctant.

  • First thing: you need to hunt. Matthew put his Philippe hat on!
  • Jack’s blood rage starts flaring up, Matthew talks him down sternly.
  • Matthew (essentially) to Jack: “go home. Our training starts NOW’
  • Hubbard is ordered to stay in New Haven.
  • Matthew is feeling sorry for himself, ONCE AGAIN….

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?"

Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 87! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 18 of The Book of Life

Jack's scent is the least of what's changed about him . . .

Take 87 - The One With Coal Fires & Foggy Mornings

Description: JACK! Jack tells his tale to Matthew and Diana, Hubbard fills in the gaps, but we now have a picture of what Jack suffered through, and who was mostly responsible for his anguish. Stay tuned for our SIFTs segment, where we do a podcast version of "vague-booking" -- enjoy!

Topic:  
Chapter 18, The Book of Life

  • It’s JACK!
  • Coal fires and foggy mornings . . . ๐Ÿ”ฅ
  • Matthew watches the scene from afar. We wonder if he doesn’t trust Gallowglass to actually protect Diana? ๐Ÿค”
  • OH NO. Jack has the blood rage!
  • Did we expect father Hubbard in first read? 2 no, 1 yes.
  • Diana’s getting choked out, and Matthew is scuffling with Hubbard! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  • The many Loberos . . .
  • Jack’s blood rage is really skittish; anything can set it off.
  • We reiterate that Matthew remains a dead-beat dad.
  • We mention his book description vs. the TV iteration of F. Hubbard
  • They enter the house to listen to Jack’s tale. STORY ๐Ÿ“– TIME!
  • Gallowglass is not happy with this situation. A scuffle with Hubbard just proved that he should have taken up the offer to practice his "wrestling" with Chris.
  • “Mistress Roydon” … “My name is Bishop”
  • Father Hubbard is your grandson, Matthew (MIKE DROP) ๐ŸŽค
  • Benjamin Fox is Hubbard’s sire, and now Benjamin wants Jack for the blood rage.
  • Gallowglass enters the “jump to conclusions” mat.
  • Our assumptions included a ring criminal kids or the land of misfit toys ... Gallowglass went a little further with his.
  • Gallowglass gets pinned, and we are in the ditch ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿš™
  • Hubbard is strong … ๐Ÿ’ช
  • Diana calls Corra? We wonder why?
  • Corra flies around with fire and song . . . we question the “fire” part ๐Ÿ”ฅ
  • Corra remembers Jack (but we point out that, for Corra, it wasn’t that long ago)
  • They settle in to listen to Jack’s tale ... OK, NOW it's STORY ๐Ÿ“– TIME!
  • Jack had the plague prior to his transformation.
  • We learn of Annie's death —wait…Annie’s dead?! 
  • We learn the fates of Walter and Henry through Jack’s story -- but Matthew knew this, right?!
  • Jack asked to become a vampire … he wanted to see Matthew and Diana again.
  • We learn that Benjamin manipulated Jack through his feelings for Matthew.
  • OH! Philippe knew…
  • Matthew had no idea of Philippe’s admiration of Matthew; Matthew, get over yourself. ๐Ÿคจ
  • Jack goes into a blood rage, and Matthew takes control.
  • We discuss how Diana can articulate the intricacies of blood rage when it appeared to the reader that she had only limited exposure to Matthew in this state.
  • The blood feds the blood rage vampire AND the blood rage.
  • The tale gets more horrific “Vampire on the loose in London” ๐Ÿ“ฐ
  • Peter . . . what were you doing?! Getting PAID, is what he was doing! ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿค‘
  • Ugh…Benjamin and crew are AWFUL
  • Ultimately, the tale makes Jack (and us) sick ๐Ÿคข
  • Diana weaves spells to calm Jack down and help him sleep. Jean sees this as a mild version of spell binding.
  • “You’re Jack’s father. You always have been” ๐Ÿฅบ
  • FIN

Mabon 2021 Giveaway!

Don't miss out!
The time has come! Mabon is here, the days are about to shorten, and we all prepare for the dark. For those of you who actually harvest, it's time to store it away, and the rest of us will join you in reflection. The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the The Green Man -- the God of the Forest -- by offering libations to trees. The offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are tradition, and we're pretty sure they figured that the trees wouldn't mind if they had some wine and ciders, too ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿท๐Ÿป. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone ๐ŸŒ›๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒœ, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth. That is all well and good, but fans of this universe mainly know that Mabon is when Matthew and Diana meet! Now we Daemons ... you all know how we celebrate! Let's say it together: WITH A GIVEAWAY! Our prize theme, this time, goes on to follow Diana and Matthew beyond the first three books, while keeping with the origins story...



Up for grabs:

Time's Convert, the fourth book in the All Souls Series channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the previous books instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries"
  • ๐Ÿ Bodleian Oath Bag๐Ÿ We picked this prize up from the Bodleian Library book shop in Oxford. This is the real deal!
  • ๐Ÿ Assorted surprise Daemon swag๐Ÿ Stickers, buttons, bookmarks...OH MY!

Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 86! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 17 of The Book of Life

This chapter serves the reader a buffet of events to focus on...

Take 86 - The One Without a Titular Event

Description: The twins, the library research, the lab discoveries, mystery characters -- oh my! Yes, with all of this we couldn't come up with a good title, so we did a "Hail Mary"! Better luck next episode! Enjoy.

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'

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?"

Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Take 85! | Chapter Discussion about the All Souls Trilogy; Chapter 16 of The Book of Life

We went a bit literal with this image, but hey -- stock photos -- If you know, you know.

Take 85 - The One With the Book Witch

Description: Chapter 16 offers us a much needed off-ramp to the familiar roads we are used to traveling on; books, libraries, labs. Miriam is there to gain control of the situation, and Gallowglass is present to lighten the mood of the situation in question. Diana is getting warmer as far as the missing page(s) trail, and Matthew is finding his feet in Chris Robert's lab. We meet a new friend, and we even had the opportunity to crash into the ditch a few times. Enjoy!

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'

The Voynich manuscript facsimile is pictured below. It was published by Yale University Press in the autumn of 2016. The book is by Raymond Clemens, Curator of Early Books and Manuscripts at the Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and our own Deborah Harkness authored the book’s introduction. Even her writing there rings true as the author we all know and love. As we've said, it's a pleasantly familiar voice on the page!
