Episode 16: THE UNKNOWN

I know it’s a been a long time since our last episode. But remember how AWESOME the Andalite Chronicles were?? Nate was there, everyone was laughing, it was a good time. Then we get to this book, The Unknown, and I just don’t know what to think. It was the first book I remember actively skipping over as a child, realizing it didn’t add anything to the overall storyline. A one-off book, if you will. Now there’s definitely nothing wrong with that, except I wouldn’t say I had very high expectations going into it. Did I change my mind? Did the story about horse-controllers bring me around?? Find out! You know, when you listen to the episode…. And sorry for the long wait, I mean, I just HAD to go on my stupid honeymoon, fully realizing it’d get in the way of the podcast…. Bad me.

In this episode we’re talking about how much we miss Nate, how awesome our new opening and segue-ways are,  getting tweeted at by Applegate + Grant, more making fun of the Scholastic marketing team, how ugly and wrong the cover is, another crazy theory about the Animorphs journals, Crazy Helen’s “Loco Weed?”, a uncharacteristic sci-fi reference overload, more arguing about how to split the series into “seasons”, how Marco gets away with being a dick all the time, Yeerks in horses, poop jokes!, toilet humor, and weird Animorphs fan fiction! All that and more in our review of Animorphs book 14, “The Unknown.”

You all need to subscribe to the show on iTunes and/or Stitcher. It’s super important because it helps more people find out about our show. If you could just take time to rate our show and review it as well, that’s the most helpful. Don’t forget: you can email us your thoughts on the next book, “The Escape” at Thoughtspeakcast@gmail.com and we’ll read them at the end of our next episode. We make no promises on whether or not we’ll make fun of you, though…

Allon-sy!
