BCSC: Weiners on Broadway

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

You've made it!  We have your weiner in lights on BROADWAY!  This Extracurricular episode was supposed to be about movie/tv adaptations of books, and it kind of is, but it's more about gabardine, Roger Klotz, what exactly Michael Fassbender is from, and, you guessed it, weiners.  Join us!  You're a star!

And come back next week on Thursday, June 26 ready to talk about the first half of Watchmen, so chapters 1-6.  We're gonna be joined by Bobby Koester and you won't want to miss it!  I mean, I assume...we haven't recorded it yet.  See you then!

BCSC: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Part 3

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Go back to Part 1 or Part 2!

Welcome to our talk finishing up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  While we're happy to see you, it can't be ignored that this time we meet this time after the most solemn of events.  Let's pour out a little pumpkin juice for one of our fallen comrades.  Let's also freak out about how awesome Dumbledore is.  Let's also talk about how there's no such thing as a guilty pleasure and how I love watching crap tv.  Amen.

On the next Shmook Club we're going to invite our friend Bobby Koester back to the Shmook Clubhouse to talk about the first half of Watchmen by Alan Moore, so read up to Chapter 7 (meaning through Chapter 6, WILL) and be ready to talk about it on Thursday, June 26.  But we'll be back next week with an Extracurricular episode, so talk to you then!  Take 'er easy!

BCSC: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Part 2

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

By virtue of Educational Decree Number 666 (eesh), we're back this week to talk about the second part of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!  Umbridge is stumping around like she owns the joint, Dumbledore still isn't making eye contact, and Harry is feeling urges he doesn't quite understand.  It's way more dramatic than that makes it sound.  Listen up!

The next time we talk about the book will be after we finish it up, so read straight on through to the end and be ready in 2 weeks on Thursday, June 12.  But we'll be back in your brains next week with a little Extracurricular action.  Talk to you soon!

Wotcher, friends!  This week we're talking about the first third of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and it looks like things are off to a pretty bumpy start for Harry and the gang.  We get into some Molly vs. Sirius talk, a little book vs. movie action, and as always, Kristen vs. William in a battle of wits that'll leave you breathless.  Jump on in!

We'll be reading the next third of the book, which bring us up to Chapter 26, which is page 570 or 64%, and talking about it in 2 weeks on Thursday, May 29.  Don't worry though, we'll be back to warm your ears up next week with a little Extracurricular action.  Talk to you then!

We are gathered here today to listen to Kristen and William cry like little babies about the death of Cedric Diggory.  Amen.  Join us on a journey through the Triwizard Tournament where we compare the book to the movie and have a great time doing it.  Also, how do we feel about fantastical beasties?  Find out!

Next time we'll be talking about the first half of The Gunslinger, which is the first book of The Dark Tower series.  We'll be reading up to page 106 which is at exactly 50% of the book for our e-reader readers, and so stop reading before the section marked "IX."  We'll be back to talk about it on April 17, so get to it if you want to follow along!

Hello, magical boys and girls!  I hope you're being careful, there's a madman on the loose...or is there?  Join us this week as we discuss Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  We get into some deep Harry Potter canon shit by discussing different magical animal breeds and whether The Amazing Johnathan is a wizard.

And get ready for next time, where we'll be comparing/contrasting/talking the hell out of 2 big deal Batman comic books- Batman: Year One by Frank Miller, which you can find here, and The Killing Joke by Alan Moore, which you can find here.  We're going to be reading both of them straight through so follow along with us and we'll talk about it on Thursday, March 6.

Hey you squibs, Will and I are back and this episode, we're talking about the first book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone!

 Image
If you don't know about this book, I don't know what sorcerer's stone you've been living under (little stone humor there.)  Will and I are a couple of regular Potternuts and we really enjoyed revisiting the first book but there were also some things we enjoyed "oof"ing at.  Check it out!  And keep it on past the goodbyes at the end for some hidden, non-book related chat...do you know what's missing from our traditional American nativity scene? Do you know about the most metal Christmas icon of all time?  Learn this week on Shmook Club!
The next book we're going to be reading is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, which you can find here.  We'll be discussing the first half on our next podcast airing Thursday, December 26, so read up to the section "A Lovely Day Tomorrow, 2 September 1939"- the book doesn't have conventional chapter numbers.  And in the meantime, please get in touch with us on Twitter, usernames @krissypajamas and @willrogers2000, or by emailing us at shmookclubrules@gmail.com if you have anything Potter-related or otherwise to say.  We'd love to hear from you!
