In today’s episode, we’re covering Chapters 25-26 of the Book of Life and continuing the search for the last missing page of Ashmole 782. There’s mild extortion, magic, and cake — it’s a better combination than you’d expect.

Thanks for your patience while we got our lives back on track over the last couple of weeks… real life is kind of a beast, sometimes.
SPEAKING OF BEASTS, the opening part of these two chapters is like a big hammer straight to your feelings. We’re here to discuss the Gallowglass reveal–unrequited love, incomplete romantic triangles, complex implications and all. There’s also some competence porn (and actual porn?), Peak Ysabeau, and a little squeeing about the glory that is Clairmont House.
On another note, Chamomile & Clove just turned TWO. This wacky, wine-fueled idea of a podcast is a toddler and we couldn’t be happier to share the experience with y’all. Thanks for welcoming us with open arms, for celebrating with us, for laughing and crying and keeping us company. We’re so lucky.
We hope you’ll join us this Wednesday, 18 September 2019, as we live-tweet Episode 1×01 of A Discovery of Witches TV to kick off the 2019 Real-Time Reading. Use the hashtag #ccalchemy so we can see you being brilliant!

It’s a miserable, hot weekend at C&C HQ East — I’m applying iced tea liberally and hope you’re doing the same.
This week, we’re discussing Chapters 18-20 of the Book of Life and I, personally, have a lot of very difficult Jack-and-Hubbard related feelings that you have to listen to me process on-air. Jack raises difficult issues for us and for our story — mental illness, the fallibility of our protagonists, the trauma inflicted by Benjamin, the FIVE HUNDRED YEARS he spent waiting for Matthew and Diana to be ready for him. It’s deep, it’s tough, and we do our best to make it through unscathed.
This time two weeks from now, we’ll be on our way home from All Souls Con 2019 in Cardiff, Wales. If you haven’t already, you can buy an online pass to the convention via AllSoulsCon.org. We’ll be posting and blogging about our trip here, on Twitter, and on Facebook — stay tuned for coverage and perhaps some special content from the Con! If you’re traveling to Cardiff, give us a shout at email@example.com or on Twitter at @chamomilenclove.

It’s a new episode Sunday here at C&C East! We hope you had a wonderful week and that those of you who celebrated Canada Day and American Independence Day had a great time with your families and friends.
In this episode, we start Sol in Virgo in New Haven with science and new characters and plot development, oh my! This episode has a little bit of everything — a discussion about romantic tropes, Diana’s identity, and the nature of blood rage as well as a fanfic-worthy Baldwin BDSM subplot (you’re welcome) and some terrible (TERRIBLE) Cait puns. Oh, and we stick lots of pins in our feelings.

We can’t wait to see you in Cardiff in THREE WEEKS. Drop us a line if you’ll be in Wales and we’ll make sure to give you a hug!
We’re mere WEEKS away from seeing your glowing, beautiful faces at All Souls Con — and we cannot wait. If you haven’t already, drop us a line if you’re making the trip to Cardiff! We’d love to be able to say hello and give you a hug. If you can’t be in Cardiff, make sure to check out AllSoulsCon.org to find ways you can play along from afar!
In the meantime, it’s time to talk about Chapters 12-14 of Book of Life — right about the time that our plot threads come together in some really uncomfortable ways. This episode comes with a content warning: we will be discussing fiction and sexual violence, which may not be appropriate for all listeners. Please exercise your discretion when listening. In other news, we get to see Chris–and watch Fernando flirt with Chris, which always puts some pep in Cait’s step. There’s also the part where Chris calls Matthew a fossil, which Jen particularly enjoys.
If you like what we do, you can support us on Patreon or make a purchase from our Redbubble store. As you can see, Cait’s modeling our Partyfamilias design — it turned out really well! We have shirts and stickers and mugs and little bags and it’s been super fun seeing what y’all choose. Please let us know if you have comments or have trouble finding sizes/styles that work for you. We’re open to ideas!
