It’s a momentous day. Somehow, on Matthew and Diana’s wedding anniversary (four hundred and something years later), we made our way to the climax of the Book of Life. In Chapters 37-39, we’re talking about rescuing Matthew, James Bond, Peak Diana, moral authority, and the difference between justice and vengeance. It’s a fitting end to a momentous, exciting story and we’re so glad you’re a part of it.

It’s a gorgeous, clean, bright October morning at C&C East — I hope you’ve poured yourself a cup of whatever pleases you and that you’re enjoying your long weekend.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about the end of Sol in Libra — Chapters 27 and 28 of The Book of Life! In these chapters, Diana tracks down the last page of Ashmole 782 and returns to the Bodleian… only to run smack into the clutches of the world conflict. We’re talking about divinity and mythology, conflict structure, antagonism, and dachschunds (SO MANY DACHSCHUNDS) and we hope you enjoy it.

Thanks so much for listening — we can’t wait to talk to you soon,
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!
You can also follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers. As always, feel free to leave us a review on iTunes or shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d like to take a moment to wish a happy Pride Month to all — may you love freely and be loved for who you are.
In this episode, we’re talking about Chapters 10-11 of Book of Life — there’s crossroads and magical primers and spell-writing and Lisa Frank and… wait. Yes, the mistress of all things neon makes a brief appearance in this episode — but that’s why you come to C&C, right? Book talk with some tangential weirdness.
All Souls Con 2019 is approaching quickly — don’t forget to register for the online streaming pass or to let us know if we’re going to see you there! You can buy swag for the occasion from our Redbubble store.

I am going to give you a peek into how things sometimes happen at C&C headquarters.
Imagine that you’re Jen, minding your own business on the West Coast (C&C West). It’s getting late on the East Coast (C&C East), so you’re settling down for the night. Then, your phone makes its chirpy text message noise.
You pick up your phone, even though you know it’s not a good sign.
CAIT: I HAVE HAD *AN IDEA*
CAIT: It’s FABULOUS and LOADS OF EFFORT and HORRIBLY SPONTANEOUS.
CAIT: What do you think?
CAIT: I’M GOING IN.
JEN: *THUMBS UP*
As you may have guessed, my lovelies, this is one of those occasions. I’ve been scheming for ways to celebrate the premiere of ADOWTV on network television… and then I remembered that the sports ball tournament starts tomorrow. And that one can make A BRACKET. Well, IT IS DONE.
I present to you the inaugural ADOWTV March Madness. Here’s how it will work:
(1) Every day between now and Monday, 8 April 2019, I’ll post a poll on our Facebook page and our Twitter account.
(2) Vote for your favorite of the two scenes listed for that day. The scene with the least votes will be eliminated from the bracket.
(3) You can join in at any time and you don’t have to be a listener to play. Come join the fun and let’s see what shakes out!
(4) We’ll have the final vote and ranking on 8 April 2019, the day after the network TV premiere.
I know you want to see the bracket, so here it is in all of its glory:
You can download your own copy below, but I’ll post updated copies as we go. The first poll will be up in a matter of hours!
Some quick caveats: (1) I know some characters are underrepresented in this bracket, but anything over 24 scenes became LUDICROUS; (2) if your favorite scene isn’t represented, let me know! I’ll make a separate poll for the scenes I overlooked; (3) I’ll count both Twitter and Facebook votes; and (4) this is supposed to be FUN. Invite your friends! Talk to other fans! Enjoy it — I know I will.
In the meantime, join me in thanking Jen for loving me despite my bright ideas.
