Episode 84 – Talkin’ About A Revolution

Bonjour, Clovers!

We so enjoyed seeing so many of you for our live kickoff to the #RealTimeReading2020 of #ADiscoveryofWitches. It was great to come together as a community and experience the magic of Chapter 1 — keep an eye out for future reading opportunities over the next couple of weeks!

We recently recorded our lecture for All Souls Con 2020 and we are beyond excited for you to hear it! Grab your virtual tickets to the con at the link and get ready, because there is some fantastic lecture and round table content coming your way!

In today’s episode, we’re deep in the throes of Marcus’s youth–and the French Revolution–in Chapters 25-27 of Time’s Convert. There’s lots of tricky talk about ideals and extremism, mental health, and perspective — and there are more penis jokes than we remembered. C’est la vie, c’est la révolution. Pour yourself a big cup of Liberté, Égalité, et Fraternité and settle on in.

We have new merchandise in our Redbubble store and there’s more coming soon. If you like, you can also support us on Patreon or just leave a rating and review on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.

If you’d like to be in the loop about future events, including live readings, follow our Twitter @chamomilenclove or–even better–join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers. We’d love to have you.

Enjoy the episode and take care!

Episode 83 – Into the Woods

Happiest Sunday, Clovers!

It’s Week 100 or something of lockdown and we are headed right into the weeds of Marcus’s story — it gets wacky, but that’s to be expected.

In today’s episode, we’re covering Chapters 21-22 of Time’s Convert — Marcus’s transformation from human to vampire, some thorny issues of transformation and consent, questions and answers, family and rebirth, manners, and an unexpected musical interlude.

We’re rapidly approaching the 2020 Real-Time Reading of A Discovery of Witches! If you haven’t participated before, the Real-Time Reading is an opportunity to re-read A Discovery of Witches one chapter at a time on the day the plot “happens” — it’s a wonderful way to mark the passing of the seasons and to bide our time before the release of A Discovery of Witches TV Season 2 in January 2021.

In recognition and celebration of this event, we’re doing a live reading event on Friday, 18 September 2020, via Zoom — if you’re interested in joining us for camaraderie and magic, you can join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers, to RSVP. You can also follow our Real-Time Reading posts via Twitter or participate in the All Souls Discussion Group on Facebook.

We look forward to celebrating the changing season with you and hope you enjoy the episode.

Happiest Sunday, Clovers!

In today’s episode, we’re covering Chapters 29, 31, and 34 of Time’s Convert! This rounds out the storyline for Diana, Matthew, and Marcus in the present before we get into the heart of the book – Marcus’s past! In these chapters, we’re talking about the trouble with spellbinding, parenting and trauma, breaking analogies (and characters), and what kind of a cake you bake for solstice. There may or may not be wasps.
