She was red, and terrible, and red. 

Stannis was sad, and mocking, and sad. 

Cressen was dead, and loving, and dead.

Oh no! A delay!

Happy Friday, friends! We're sorry to say that this week's episode of His Dark Materials—The Amber Spyglass is delayed til next week. We'll update when we have a release date.

We appreciate everyone's patience as this season has been very busy for us!

Until then, if you're itching for more His Dark Materials content... it seems that Philip Pullman has JUST released The Imagination Chamber, full of moments with beloved characters—and which will be our topic for next month's Patreon episode!

Sam has grown a lot since we first met him, and he's going to continue developing as he enters a new arc: magical boarding school. We meet a new cast of characters with new kinds of magic before leaving off on a long, long cliffhanger.

And now his watch is ended... but not our read-through! Zack from Game of Owns joins us to talk about Aemon's life, Sam's fear, Gilly's heroism, Kojja Mo's wisdom, and more in this chapter. There's some fiery banter but also talk about literal fire and things that taste like fire.

The gang is in Braavos but the big city has been unkind. Aemon's ailing, Gilly's sad, Dareon's drifting, and Sam's riling up some bravos. Thankfully a little Cat bears her claws and dispenses some wisdom. Sam shows Dareon what's what before a fateful encounter.

Originally released for Girls Gone Canon Patrons April, 2020 ~ become a GGC Patron @ patreon.com/girlsgonecanon where patrons in the Stranger tier & above receive monthly bonus episodes ~ 

 Spoilers: MAIN TRILOGY, Novellas, and hints/foreshadowing toward things we may see in a future book of dust.

We sit down to discuss the novella Once Upon a Time in the North, which focuses on Lee Scoresby - and Iorek Byrnison! (And NOT Victoria Lund, bye).  Join in and listen to some musings, as we speculate on what Poliakov was really mining for, a "severing", and even some fragrant oils.
