Episode #23: Hatoful Boyfriend

This week, LC solos a short, mostly spoiler-free show about Hatoful Boyfriend, the post-apocalyptic pigeon dating sim (yes, you read that right) that’s eaten her brain. Highlights include:

  • A quick update about LC’s health and posting schedule
  • How did a dating sim about birds get to be so good?
  • How does one romance a bird, anyway?
  • Allegra Clark’s Hatoful Boyfriend streams

Thanks for listening! See you next week.

New episode delayed a week

Sorry to have to do this again so soon, but this week’s episode will be delayed. On top of my friend’s passing, I’ve been dealing with a very stressful health situation this past week and I just haven’t had any time or mental bandwidth for podcasting. I’ll be back in the saddle next week, one way or the other. Promise.

Thanks for your patience, and as always, thanks for listening.

An announcement

I hate to do this, but The Heroine’s Journey will be going biweekly for the remainder of August, possibly even into September.

Grief is a funny and terrible thing. Some days you throw yourself into whatever project you can find. Other days you can barely find the motivation to brush your teeth. You can’t really predict how it will touch you day to day. But you can plan for it, at least.

I love The Heroine’s Journey, but putting together the podcast on a weekly basis is just too much work to expect myself to accomplish right now.  So I’m dropping the whole “weekly basis” thing.

It was either this or go on hiatus, and I enjoy doing the podcast too much to just stop. Plus, I don’t want to let all you wonderful listeners down. So don’t worry. The podcast will still be updated — just once every two weeks instead. And as soon as I’m back on my feet, I’ll raise the frequency back up again.

Thanks for understanding, and, as always, thanks for listening.

Episode #22: The Terminator Films

This week, LC geeks out with Sylvia Monreal, creator of @comosedicenerd, over The Terminator films. It’s an extra-huge episode to contain our extra-huge feels, including:

  • The Terminator as humanity’s case for existence
  • The man in the machine, the machine in the man: Where does Kyle Reese – or Sarah Connor – end and the Terminator begin?
  • Dissecting the hell out of that love scene
  • Why The Terminator and T2 have to be watched together
  • Why the rest of the franchise never quite achieves what the first two movies did (SPOILERS for Terminator: Genisys starting at 55:35)

Plus: Daniel Jose Older’s Shadowshaper; whitewashing heroines in YA fiction; Sunset; and Tales of Xillia!

Main topic starts at: 21:56
No emails this week

Intro and Outro music: “Snow World Under the White Moon“, EeL
